Homer's Iliad **New Start Date**
Using Robert Fagles' translation of the Iliad, we will do a close reading and discussion of the poem. Our main focus will be on Homer's characters and what they tell us about life, death, and war. We will also spend some time looking at the forms and devices of epic poetry. Marilyn Scott was a lecturer in Classics and Great Books at UM and taught Latin and English at Ann Arbor’s Community High School.
