Diomedes Speaks of Fame ~ Burt Porter

For some reason I’ve decided to end the year by regularly reading something on Jstor; why I picked this as a hobby is a good question because I have no idea. But here we are.

But I’ve always been a big fan of the Trojan War, and at some point Diomedes was someone I really wanted to know more about. Which meant that when I opened Jstor and had no idea what to look for, I looked for him.

I also don’t entirely know why I picked this poem today. It’s possibly because I’m re-reading The Iliad, mostly because I love the Stephen Mitchell introduction.
