The Odyssey is an epic poem that combined with its preuel The Iliad are the oldest surviving works in Western literature The poem f. Okay so here's what happened I went out after work with the guys we went to a perfectly nice bar this chick was hitting on me but I totally brushed her off Anyway we ended up getting pretty wrecked and we might have smoked something in the bathroom I'm not totally clear on that part and then this gigantic one eyed bouncer kicked us out so we somehow ended up at a strip club The guys were total pigs but not me seriously that's not glitter on my neck And then we totally drove right by these hookers without even stopping and here I am Only a little bit late By the way I crashed the car and six of the guys are in jail Ask for Officer ScyllaEhHomer's right Odysseus' version is betterPS Do not try this story at home unless when you get there you're still capable of shooting your arrow into a narrow apertureFagles' translation is excellent the new standard and Bernard Knox's enormous introduction is the best Homeric essay I've ever readA good companion read is Hal Roth's We Followed Odysseus maybe not the most elouent of books but he retraces Odysseus's voyage as best he can in his sailboat which is a pretty rad idea I recreated his route as a Google map here with notes on each of the stops I also wrote summaries of each book of the Odyssey for a book club discussion; I've pasted them in the comments thread below if you're interested

Homer ¹ 5 review

Ocuses on the journeys of the Greek hero Odysseus after the fall of Troy The original poem was composed in oral tradition by singer. Ever since I first read Homer’s epic describing the adventures of Odysseus back in my school days three of those adventures fired my imagination The Lotus Eaters The Cyclops and the Sirens most especially the Sirens I just did revisit these sections of this Greek epic and my imagination was set aflame yet again How much you ask Here is my microfiction as a tribute to the great poetTHE SIRENS This happened back in those days when I was a member of an experimental performing arts troupe down in Greenwich Village We would read poetry dance and act out avant garde plays in our dilapidated little theater For a modest charge people could come in and watch for as long as they wantedSomehow a business executive who worked downtown in the financial district heard of what we were doing and spoke with our director about an act he has all worked out but needed a supporting cast and that he would pay handsomely if we went along with himWell experimental is experimental and if we were going to be well paid we had nothing to lose The first thing he did was pass out our costumes In addition to himself he had parts for three men and three women The play we were to perform was so simple we didn’t even need a written script He was to be Odysseus from Homer’s epic and three men would be his sailors As for the women we would be the singing SirensSo after he changed – uite a sight in a loincloth being gray haired jowly pasty skinned and potbellied – we went on stage and he told the sailors how no man has ever heard the hypnotic songs of the Sirens and lived to tell the tale but he mighty Odysseus would be the first He instructed the sailors to tie him to the ship’s mast They used one of the building’s pillars and when he cried out as the Sirens sang their song the sailors who had wax in their ears were to bind him to the mast even tighterMeanwhile three of us ladies were on stage as the Sirens in costume bare breasted and outfitted with wings We began singing a sweet lilting melody Mike – that was the businessman’s name – started screaming and the sailors tightened the ropes that bound him The sailors were glad their ears were plugged as Mike screamed for nearly half an hour When the ship passed out of earshot of the Sirens the sailors unbound mighty Odysseus and he collapsed on our makeshift stage a mass of exhausted middle aged flesh The audience applauded even cheered and we continued our performance of Odysseus and the Sirens every night for than a week Then one night Mike outdid himself His blue eyes bulged the veins in his neck popped and his face turned a deeper blood scarlet than ever before And what I feared might happen did happen – Mike had a heart attack We had to interrupt our performance and call an ambulanceWe all thought that was the end of our dealing with Mike aka Odysseus until our director received a call from the hospital Mike told her he was going to be just fine and would be back on stage next week We called a meeting and everyone agreed that we would suggest Mike seek psychiatric help but if he insists on playing Odysseus he will have to take his act elsewhere Arabian Love Poems yet again How much Web Design is Dead
