Paul Friedrich shows how writers through the ages have interpreted Homer's Odyssey.

The Soul of the Republic
Jonathan Lear sees Plato in a different light.

Travels with a Satirist
Ned Rosenheim offers signposts to Gulliver’s Travels.

Ocean Reveries
Mark Strand finds the poetry in Moby-Dick.

The Genius of the Everyday
