I cannot accurately judge this piece of literature. This is what is considering as epic poetry. It’s one of the classics making it very hard to accurately rate it. But I will discuss how I feel about it. I over all enjoyed the book, but it is so different than current literature. There is a lot of repetition and in today’s literature there is taboo against repetition whereas here there is a lot of repetition. Word for word which makes reading this a bit tedious to read. There is also this acceptance of woman’s sexuality. That is still, even today in modern society, something that is generally feared. It’s a very progressive piece of work in many aspects, but also at the same time, very tedious because of it’s repetitive nature. Overall a great read.
