Anabasis, by Xenophon
“Ah, Dedalus, the Greeks. I must teach you. You must read them in the original. Thalatta! Thalatta!” — Buck Mulligan in Joyce’s Ulysses.
“Warriors, come out to play-i-ay.” — From the movie The Warriors.
Well I didn’t read it in the original Greek but I finally read this book. It’s nice when you finally read something that has such a rich cultural history and you see all the influences it has had.
