And then, on a whim, I searched to see if the Perseus material was going to be available as a stand-alone product.
And it is. Already. FOR FREE.
I don’t have the full version of Logos on my work computer, so I can’t delve too deeply, but it’s a tremendous number of Greek and Latin texts and translations.
This won’t keep me from buying the various other Noet and Loeb offerings, of course. Because you can’t have too many books, especially when they don’t weigh anything. But oh man, does this make it a lot easier to, say, pull up the original Greek of the Phaedrus on my phone at a cocktail party. And we all know how often that comes up.
*jumping up and down with geeky joy*
(They also have other material from the Perseus database, including Beowulf and the Duke Documentary Papyri, if that’s how you roll.)
ADDENDUM: It turns out the Perseus material has been (incrementally) available on Logos for almost two years now. Still pretty cool, though.
