Early second day hint: "Perhaps Iliad" is the direct, and the answer is a word which I did not realise has this meaning (more usually having musical connotations).

The clue could have been simply "perhaps Odyssey discloses perhaps Iliad," but I reversed it to make it less obvious, and therefore the vice versa aspect needed stating.

Oh Lex, this is going to hurt me more than it does you. That was massively illegal. Ten lashes. Sorry.

I'm having trouble understanding what it was about my clue that was so illegal, in that I am sure I have seen a similar device used elsewhere in clues.

However, the dictionary down the back of the trousers rendered the whipping less fierce! smile

That's always possible, Lex. It was probably one of Denis's. wink But a hidden word must be intact in the clue. kissy

It has been brought to my attention that I might have made a mistake! I know, shocking. wink

Perhaps Iliad disclosing perhaps Odyssey? No, quite the opposite! (8)

"rhapsody" IS intact within the clue, but the verb "disclosing" indicates that the hiding was done in "perhaps Iliad". Not such an egregious error, maybe half a lash worth, at most. Adding in "No, quite the opposite" doesn't clearly indicate that the clue should be switched around.

My apologies, Lex. It's dangerous to rely on my memory these days, but if you do make a mistake or two in the future, you've already paid the horrible price.
