The Great Books Bracket: Final Matchup

And then there were two . . .

So here we are. It’s time for the final matchup of our Great Books Bracket and you, the voters, have spoken and you have been heard. You’ve narrowed the competition from 64 of the world’s greatest books to the two which you, collectively (and, to be fair, not without dissent among your ranks) believe to be the Greatest of all the Great Books are: Dante’s Divine Comedy and Homer’s Odyssey.

Truth is, both books won fairly easily. The Odyssey defeated the Republic with 68% of the vote and the Divine Comedy knocked off the Iliad with 62% of the vote.

So that means it’s time for the championship round vote. Which of these two remaining books is the Greatest of all the Great Books?
