  1. Greetings.

    I’m a student of Homeric Greek, on a long personal odyssey to learn enough Greek to appreciate reading Homer’s Odyssey in Greek with some level of appreciation.

    You might appreciate some of the content of my imagessays.com website (see ΟΔΥΣΣΕΙΑ webpage).

    I’d like to hear from you.

    Thanks,
    Jim Boogaerts
