My Thoughts

I had a hard time with this one. I’m realizing there are varying levels of required knowledge of Greek Mythology before reading Greek Literature. I’m at about the elementary school level of understanding and I’d place this one at a college level knowledge requirement. I missed so many of the mythological references and would have been better served waiting until I had a better grasp before reading. Perhaps I’ll return to this in the future. There were some beautiful lines and the referenced mythology I did recognize was quite exciting.
