Okay, so I’m posting this a little bit late in the game, but better late than never!
In July, the wonderful Jean from BookishThoughts decided to host a Classical Literature Read-Along that would take place in the month of August, as a way to help encourage other people to delve into some classical literature. The plan was to read Homer’s Odyssey in the first two weeks of August, and Ovid’s Metamorpheses in the final two weeks of August.
I read the Odyssey just at the end of last summer and didn’t feel like re-reading it so soon, especially as I’m in the depths of my MA dissertation. I did, however, decide to join in with reading Ovid!
