i read homer’s the “iliad & odyssey” in wilson junior high school, san diego. i remember the format was written as poetry, because our teacher’s aid told me not to pause at the end of each line. i thought that was how you were supposed to read poetry at the time. we were in a team teaching classroom --history and english —we had to read with a microphone in front of 40 students and four teachers. i hated it.

the edition of the “iliad and odyssey” my husband bought at morely’s books, downtown carson city, nv, a few years ago is cantebury classics, san diego. a prose edition.
