"σχετλίη, ἦ ῥα κακὸν καὶ ἀεικέα μήσαο νόστον.
ἔλπομαι οὐκ ἐπὶ δήν σε βαρὺν χόλον Αἰήταο
ἐκφυγέειν· τάχα δ᾿ εἶσι καὶ Ἑλλάδος ἤθεα γαίης
τισόμενος φόνον υἷος, ὅτ᾿ ἄσχετα ἔργα τέλεσσας.
ἀλλ᾿ ἐπεὶ οὖν ἱκέτις καὶ ὁμόγνιος ἔπλευ ἐμεῖο,
ἄλλο μὲν οὔ τι κακὸν μητίσομαι ἐνθάδ᾿ ἰούσῃ·
ἔρχεο δ᾿ ἐκ μεγάρων ξείνῳ συνοπηδὸς ἐοῦσα,
ὅν τινα τοῦτον ἄιστον ἀείραο πατρὸς ἄνευθεν,
μηδέ με γουνάσσηαι ἐφέστιος· οὐ γὰρ ἐγώ γε
αἰνήσω βουλάς τε σέθεν καὶ ἀεικέα φύξιν."
ὣς φάτο· τὴν δ᾿ ἀμέγαρτον ἄχος λάβεν· ἀμφὶ δὲ πέπλον
ὀφθαλμοῖσι βαλοῦσα γόον χέεν, ὄφρα μιν ἥρως
χειρὸς ἐπισχόμενος μεγάρων ἐξῆγε θύραζε
δείματι παλλομένην· λεῖπον δ᾿ ἀπὸ δώματα Κίρκης.
οὐδ᾿ ἄλοχον Κρονίδαο Διὸς λάθον, ἀλλά οἱ Ἶρις
πέφραδεν, εὖτ᾿ ἐνόησεν ἀπὸ μεγάροιο κιόντας.
αὐτὴ γάρ μιν ἄνωγε δοκευέμεν, ὁππότε νῆα
στείχοιεν.

I thought it was about greek cutlure junk like stupid talk shows, hillariously bad pop music, cringy behaviors of people, news exposing the rudeness of greek people, the politics, etc.

I keep telling myself I'll learn Greek once I feel good about my Latin. But I'm starting to fear I'll never get there.

Are you studying on your own?

I teach Latin and study/read ancient Greek. If there's anything I can help with I'd be happy to. Goes for anyone here I guess.

Yeah, I'm just teaching myself from pdfs of textbooks and online sources. I always thought Latin was neat, but never had the time as a student. I'm struggling with the jump from 'latin as crossword puzzle', where I have to halt my reading and puzzle out the word order and grammar, to 'latin as language', where I can read fluently without stopping, except for looking up the occasional unfamiliar word.

Oh, and poetry is complete gibberish.
