So I have basically no time at the moment, trying to do a speed read through the Odyssey followed by the same through Joyce’s Ulysses (and writing assignments on both) and at this point I figure I’m going at about, maybe, 1/6th the speed I’d need to go to not have everything come crashing down around me. And I haven’t gotten to the Joyce yet.
Anyway, open thread. I was hoping someone else would post one, guess not. So here, have this:
What’s your favorite myth? Your least favorite?
Do you have any myths where you prefer one version over another? (For example, I prefer Hesiod’s version the Ariadne story to Homer’s. (I like happy endings.))
