I am trying to copy and paste some things from the odyssey and am not having any success - please help
Depending on what you are trying to copy and paste from, some items can not be read to be copied into a different place. Some items are protected. For example, you can't highlight text from many pdf files and expect to put it into a different document.
There is a site I sometimes use with The Odyssey and it has a couple of versions you can use.
Here is it's link:
This provides a direct English version, a Greek version and another English translation that seems a little abridged. This is a resource I have found linked to our eNotes analysis of The Odyssey.
