About David Bruce

I would like to see my retellings of classic literature used in schools, so I give permission to the country of Finland (and all other countries) to buy one copy of this eBook and give copies to all students forever. I also give permission to the state of Texas (and all other states) to buy one copy of this eBook and give copies to all students forever. I also give permission to all teachers to buy one copy of this eBook and give copies to all students forever.

Teachers need not actually teach my retellings. Teachers are welcome to give students copies of my eBooks as background material. For example, if they are teaching Homer’s “Iliad” and “Odyssey,” teachers are welcome to give students copies of my “Virgil’s ‘Aeneid’: A Retelling in Prose” and tell students, “Here’s another ancient epic you may want to read in your spare time.”

I also write collections of anecdotes; most of the anecdotes are funny or at least interesting, while some provoke thinking.

Review by: Bernard Fancher on Sep. 21, 2011 :
Enjoyable and unpretentious. A simple retelling that makes this ancient masterwork entirely accessible to the modern reader. Bravo!
