Odyssey and Iliad Translations
Patricia Storace interviewed Professor Robert Fagles of Princeton University about the years he spent working on translations of Homer’s “The Iliad” and “The Odyssey,” the challenges of translating archaic Greek, and the relevance of Homer’s stories to our time. Ms. Storace is the author of “Dinner with Persephone.” Following the interview, Professor Fagles took questions from the audience. A transcript of this interview will be printed in “Paris Review” magazine later this year. close
