Sneak Preview: Homer in Ian McKellen’s English

Yesterday we brought you a snippet of the Iliad in the Original Greek. How about The Odyssey in Ian McKellen’s sonorous rendition?

All there on Youtube, all for free. I love the twenty-first century so much.

Come back Monday when The History of Literature takes a look at Homer. In the meantime, you can catch up on Episode 1 – The Epic of Gilgamesh and Episode 2 – The Hebrew Bible.
