Life, Left Over

Meat Monday

Posted on: October 24, 2011

It’s Monday again! At the beginning of each week, we here at Life Left Over take a quick break and head over to my other site, Textbook Leftovers. We’re reading through the Norton Anthology of World Literature, and no, it’s nothing like a dry old literature class.

This week, we’re reading Books 4 and 5 of The Odyssey. The highlights? Telémakhos parties with Meneláos, and Kalypso rants about double standards to Hermês! Homer saves his best poetry for the women, and I’m really starting to love that about him.

PS – if you subscribe to either of my blogs, either by email or by RSS, you may have received a bunch of reposts. I sorted and organized my tags tonight, and at least one entry got reposted somehow. Sorry for the inconvenience.
