The lovely thing about learning Greek to read Homer is that Homeric Greek has a nice small vocabulary, and NOT too much in the way of long, convoluted sentences. You will love it.

Consistency is not always easy. I finally got constant with my Greek this summer in England, and actually managed to translate two books of the Iliad! Only fifty lines a day, but it adds up. Still, one is so often not in the mood for yet more catalogue of Ships.

Anything to get out Waco for the summer!! I was visiting my fiance, also singing a Liederabend. And going to a conference on Charles Williams. VERY good fun.

Oh, yes, the writer. Gloomy eerie books, but the people at the conference were wonderful British nutters, and it was fun staying at an Oxford college. Much better food than I remember from my grad school days up North in Durham. I went to the Natural History Museum to see Alice's Dodo.

I think I'd call him more of a fantasist - his books are full of weird things people think at first are hallucinations, and later find to be true, and somehow profoundly morally significant. NOT good books to read alone at night. Like That Hideous Strength. (Incidentally, I wrote the chapter on the Space Trilogy in CS Lewis and Narnia for Dummies!)

I will do so. I know many homeschooling students. Do you teach via the internet?
