As with all the Nietzche, I did what I did with the Iliad: I read a few
pages, then began to just read just the first sentence of each paragraph
and would up just reading the the first paragraph of each chapter, or
"Book." As I leaf through the intervening pages, if something catches my
eye I stop and read that as well.
I mean, I HAVE read other better translations of The Iliad. It's not like
I was missing anything. With the Nietzche, I felt like I was better off
NOT reading it too closely!

Yes that's the one. The Odyssey is translated by Lang and Butcher.
