Lattimore's translation of The Odyssey  is listed in Amazon under different 
dates but I believe those are rereleases  of the original translation of '71. 
My copy is gone or I would send it to you and I can only guess that it is the 
copyshe wants.  She might check that date as a hardbound copy is available from 
Amazon dated '77 and it may be a rerelease of an original listed from The Univ. 
of Chicago Press.  I cannot imagine his putting out a different translation 
that soon after a first with all the other works he was translation as well as 
his work teaching.  He worked with David (?) Greene on a number of translations 
and I will check with one of his students if she knows of more than one 
translation by Lttimore of the Odyssey and get back to you as soon as she 
answers.  I hope this helps.  I will also check with a friend who may have it 
and see if she can give/lend it to me and if she does I'll contact you for an 
address.  I'll be in touch unless one of you lets me know she/you  have it. 

Sorry I took so long to answer but I have been ignoring my mail in an effort to 
get some scanning done while I still have the demo of Kurzweil.  Do you know 
how I can change my Kurzweil files so when I lose the demo I won't lose the

  HI all
  I have a question and a favor to ask I have a friend who just joined 
bookshare something about a promo from the n f b. anyway, she was looking fr a 
book that I am sure most of you are framiliar with it is called The Oddessy by 
Homer. The probblem is that she needs a spacific year (1971) and translation of 
the book. I looked the translater up His name is LATTIMORE. I searched the net 
and I can't get the translater and the year to match. Has anyone ever heard of 
this edition? If anyone has any information that proves that the year matches 
the author I'd appriciate it. Thannks in advance
