First published in English around 1615, Homer’s The Odyssey has been foundational reading for generations. Four hundred and two years later, the first translation into English by a woman of this canonical text has made its way onto bookshelves. Emily Wilson, professor of classical studies at the University of Pennsylvania, will read from her translation and discuss her approach to the project.

This program is presented in partnership with the Scripps College Department of Classics.
