A Literary Odyssey is doing a read-along of Homer's Iliad for the month of May and, being absolutely insane, I've decided to join in on top of all the other reading I have planned for the month.
I have until the 16th of May to get through the first twelve books and then the 31st of May to get through the last twelve. Definitely do-able.
This is my second time reading The Iliad. It was required reading for a class I took in college on ancient Greek history--the same class that made me want nothing more in the world than to be a professor of Classics. I have a special place in my heart for The Iliad and I even have a quote from it tattooed on my arm so I'm glad I have an excuse to reread it.
