Re: Nautikos

I put the 'poem' back so you could see something besides nothing, niente, nada, rien, nichts... Oh, and your lunch sounded delicious!

And a Happy Bloomsday to you, too! I remember reading only a part of the book, as was assigned, years ago and no doubt did miss out. The edition one reads is important, I think. I should revisit the book.

Now I liked Anne of Green Gables Naut. I don't like reading books that have been shown as films. I have a early collection of Charles Dickens, but the original versions are hard reading. I expect a lot of folk keep classic books just to look good, not you of course.

Maybe I should have put 'hero' in quotes - there is no 'battle to the death' involved here, Pat...BTW, I have the Penguib edition with an intro by Declan Kiberd, which is very good, (in my opinion, LOL), and I have read many others, although don't nercessarily remember all of it - actually, I definitely don't remember all of it...

I'm lucky to read in Blogit let alone a real book. LOL

I definitely am a slow reader if a book is really (by my standards) worth reading.  If it's not, I'll give it a couple of tries and then discard it.

I remember we studied this work in high school, but that's been

more than 60 years ago. It was important literature then, no doubt still is. I think of it as an epic journey, a battle to the death, focused on honor and theories about what makes a man worthy of respect... I think I'll see if I can find a copy.
