So far, what I have that I like: 12 pages, about 3000 words (without footnotes). That doesn’t sound like a lot, but consider: that’s commentary on less than 4 pages of a 150 page book.
I think that gives you an idea how dense this thing has become, and why I am never terribly eager to talk about it.
I will be putting excerpts up as soon as I edit and get the footnotes in order. Right now I’d like to finish a ton more, and I have notes galore just waiting to be typed up and turned into dissertation.
If any of you knows a publisher willing to take a chance on a commentary on Xenophon’s Memorabilia, let me know. For all this work – I mean, this thing is going to be mammoth in a few more days – I think getting this thing out in book form to a larger audience is necessitated. I am making sense of what is an incredibly difficult text, I think.
