I think it is great that stories like the Odyssey have survived for this long and are still so well known. The pieces about the Cyclops and Circe are among the best known parts I think. I read these in class but it was a couple of years ago, so it nice to revisit. I wasn’t sure this was the best translation, but the story, of course, always stays the same.
However, if you would like to read it, I would suggest a fuller edition than just these two stories.
