T. E. Lawrence to Bruce Rogers


Dear B.R.

That's what Homer said. I see the idiocy of it, now. Let us save him from himself and say

'And so at last long-suffering Odysseus yielded to his weariness and slept there*: while Athene' (or something of the sort)

I don't use any obsolete words, I think, or even archaic words - or I hope I don't! The thing tries to be straightforward.

As I said, l shouldn't bother to correct any misprints. They are accidents, obviously, and not intentions.


*Delete 'there' if it doesn't fit neatly on the next clause.
