Finishing The Odyssey

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

"When young Dawn with her red-rose fingers
shone once more...."
hit my eyes . Then she came again, many
times with these words, over and over again.
Another day comes and " Dawn rose
on her golden throne." All throughout
Homer's Odyssey, he writes a new day this

I don't think I will look at DAWN again
without thinking
of the beauty of Homer's personification.
Nathaniel Hawthorne does that in his
House of Seven Gables as the house itself
becomes personified.

THAT is a book I need to attempt again! Sometimes when you try a book as a kid/young adult it just doesn't WORK, and you have to save it for later. I tried that one and it didn't work... I still have it on the shelf, though... hmmm....
