Apostolos Athanassakis’ translation of The Homeric Hymns. Definitely not what I expected when I ordered it from work last fall. It was dry, boring, and a chore to work through. But the main text was only 62 pages* (with 30 pages of notes**), so I figured it would be a quick read.
Sigh. It wasn’t.
But I’m done with it now, and it is officially book 5 of 52. 47 more to go!
