Have now completed The Divine Comedy (and my original commitment to the Challenge). I do think I’ll keep reading, though, and maybe make the Classicist category. Here’s my review for The Divine Comedy III: Paradise by Dante Alighieri (trans by Dorothy L Sayers & Barbara Reynolds): http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2010/10/divine-comedy-paradise.html

I just read The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood, based on The Odyssey. Awesome story! Review can be found here.

5. Bev - October 23, 2010

Extra credit reading: The Conference of the Birds by Jean-Claude Carriere & Peter Brook (based on the poem by Farid Uddi Attar)


6. Bev - October 25, 2010

Went for another Classic: Gilgamesh (trans by Herbert Mason): http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2010/10/gilgamesh.html

That makes two down towards the Classicist category.
