I just love this site. Thank you for the work that I know goes into this. You present something wonderful every day.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the exact same napkin doodle posted on Sept. 23, 2009, supposedly found in Robert Fagles's Odyssey? Is this a case of accidentally releasing a bookmark back into the wild and recapturing it again?
No, you're totally right. I must have never put it away and it got recirculated in my stack of books to price. I'm really quite surprised I didn't realize it was a duplicate - it was my own forgotten bookmark.
The doodle being originally found in the Fagles makes more sense, since the artwork looks decidedly studentish, or bored-in-classish. That's the same edition I was assigned when I was in high school; it had recently been published, I think.
