Oh, dear. I desperately slogged through the Lattimore in college but ADORE the Fagles. Have never read the Fitzgerald. Different strokes!

Qaiser Khalil A review of classical works like Odyssey, when you have more than one translations at hand, is something not to be taken lightly. I agree with you: Lattimore for study and Fitzgerald for reading.

Qaiser Khalil I didn't know Alexander Pope translated translated it. I can't wait find a copy and start reading right away.
