Columbia Daily Spectator, Columbia University: Emily Wilson's Odyssey added to Core Curriculum

Less than a year after it was published, Emily Wilson’s innovative translation of Homer’s epic poem the “Odyssey” has replaced the long-standing version by Richard Lattimore as part of the [Columbia University] Core Curriculum.

Wilson has crafted a translation that resonates with a new generation of readers by actively inviting them to question and consider the underlying complexities and multiplicity of voices that are present in Homer’s seemingly ancient, yet increasingly relevant, epic poem. Click here for the full announcement in the Columbia Daily Spectator.
