The Odyssey with Stanley Lombardo
September 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
ESU Special Collections and Archives celebrates National Translation Month with a reading from the Odyssey by award-winning translator Stanley Lombardo. Attributed to the ancient Greek poet Homer, the Odyssey tells the story of the hero Odysseus as he strives to return home to his family after the Trojan War. On the way, he encounters many obstacles, including a man-eating giant, a scheming enchantress, and a pair of dangerous sea monsters, before finally being reunited with his wife and son.
