For 5$ it's an absolute bargain. Most editions of ancient epics come at more than three times that price.

And of course, I'm liking it a lot. I think I just might want to read a few poems after this. More thoughts to come once I'm done.
Don't know if you'll be up for more poems once you're done with book 24. But feel free to ask, I'd be happy to address you if the kind of poetry falls within my branch of specialisation.
