The Fitzgerald translation of the Odyssey is really fucking beautiful /lit/.
To think I'd almost given up because of the Alexander Pope version.
Any other greek stories where certain translations are miles above the rest?
You can actually find it online for free though, if you don't mind reading off a screen/kindle.
there are super-awesome retells of quite a lot of greek mythology by this guy >>7620294
well, to bad he only did this in german but it kinda feels like reading a marvel-film albeit being very close to the source.
Which parts didn't he write? I'm halfway through and loving it (more than the Iliad, in fact, although that probably makes me a pleb). But there was a brief bit where the poetry seemed to drop off and get kind of clunky.
