Storytellers on Storytelling: Homeric Edition

                                “There’s nothing better

than when deep joy holds sway throughout the realm

and banqueters up and down the palace sit in ranks,

enthralled to hear the bard, and before them all, the tables

heaped with bread and meats, and drawing wine from a mixing bowl

the steward makes his rounds and keeps the winecups flowing.

This, to my mind, is the best that life can offer.”

The Odyssey, Book IX, ll 5-10

 

“Each man delights in the work that suits him best.”

The Odyssey, book XIV, l. 260
