Few works are more fundamental to understanding our heritage than Homer’s The Iliad.  This course aims to immerse the participant in Homer’s world through a close reading of The Iliad in a modern English translation.  Reading, discussion and writing in response to what we read will help broaden our understanding of Greek mythology and Homer’s contribution to world literature, no matter at which level we begin.
