These things are complex and not predetermined. Some women, yes. Maybe now, after all the media coverage of my work, interviewers might finally start asking cisgender men about how gender impacts their work. It would be about time.

Can you explain how that works? I hope that pieces like this will help enliven a new interest in Homer among Greeks. Also, I hope, about the power of metrical poetry, and how vivid and compelling storytelling can speak across time. Thousands of people will get to discover Homer through your work, your eyes.
I looked closely at a few passages in multiple translations after finishing my translation, not while I was doing it. I think the Greek text allows a lot more sympathy here, and a lot more multivocality in general, a lot more narrative complexity, than many translations seem to do. This has to do with far more than just gender, though of course gender tends to be the headline. The real story is about narrative perspective and literary as well as ethical complexity. No of course not, not necessarily.
