Odysseus Speaks

"I will tell you all of this, down to the last detail.
If you and I could have only have food and sweet wine
for the duration, feasting on and on quietly
here in your hut, leaving the work to others--
It would easily take me a full year, and even then
I would not finish my heart's tale of sorrows,
all that I have endured by the will of the gods."

The Odyssey, Book 14. Translated by Stanley Lombardo

Thank you, Todd. Now I'm searching through dusty stacks of classics for my own copy! Too early! -JM
