My library hold came in! The new translation of The Odyssey by Emily Wilson. Here's a NYT piece on it: nytimes.com/2017/11/02/magazin

This is the first English translation by a woman. In our language's 500-year history this is the first time society and academia and economics have aligned just right so that for once a member of the other half (more or less) of the human race got to take a crack at it.
