In November last year I joined author/actor Michael De Cock and translator/poet Patrick Lateur on a trip to Troy and Asia Minor, on assignment for the Belgian newspaper ‘De Standaard’. Patrick Lateur recently translated Homeros’ Ilias into Dutch. Michael De Cock directed the ‘Ilias Marathon‘, a five nights lasting play in which 20 actors and actresses read the whole book to the audience.
