"It is perhaps only normal if our initial impulse on being introduced to the characters of The Odyssey is to stare at them as though they are a family of duck-billed platypuses circling their enclosure in the municipal zoo. (...) But an advantage of more prolonged encounters with Proust or Homer is that worlds that had seemed threateningly alien reveal themselves to be essentially much like our own, expanding the range of places in which we feel at home. It means we can open the zoo gates and release a set of trapped creatures from the Trojan War or the Faubourg Saint-Germain, who we had previously considered with unwarranted provincial suspicion, because they had names like Eurycleia and Telemachus or had never sent a fax."
