John Jackson's Parsed Interlinear Odyssey!

Homer's epic opens:
Tell me, O Muse, of the man of many devices, who wandered full many ways after he had sacked the sacred citadel of Troy.ἄνδρα μοι ἔννεπε, μοῦσα, πολύτροπον, ὃς μάλα πολλὰ πλάγχθη, ἐπεὶ Τροίης ἱερὸν πτολίεθρον ἔπερσεν
Now you can read the Muse's story in fully parsed Greek on your PalmOS handheld!

John Jackson, of handheldclassics.com, has released a parsed interlinear Greek text of Homer's Odyssey for use with PalmBible+. John has put a tremendous amount of work into this text, including providing line numbers for the English translation, so that it scrolls in sync with the Greek text!

The text, along with other Homeric works are available for download at text.handheldclassics.com.

The translation and text are based on the public domain Loeb edition: Homer. The Odyssey with an English Translation by A.T. Murray, PH.D. in two volumes. LCL 104 & 105. Cambridge, MA., Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann, Ltd. 1919.
