Reading the Iliad

Encounters & Reflections: Conversations with Seth Benardete. With Robert Berman, Ronna Berger, and Michael Davis (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2002), p. 67:
Seth: I sat in the room and read Homer from cover to cover, all the time. And I had all these notes, but nothing made any sense. So I said to myself, I better read it through as fast as possible.

Ronna: To get an overall impression?

Seth: Yes. So I read it in three days.

Ronna: In Greek?

Seth: Yes. Three days, eight books at a time.
