52 Books: The Homeric Hymns

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!

* In 12-point typeface.
