  This course focuses on Homer's Iliad, one of the most famous texts of the western world. This epic poem, which narrates episodes from near the end of the ten-year long Trojan War, influenced cultures throughout antiquity, far beyond its original historical and cultural context. In this course, we will look at the Iliad and how and why later Greeks and Romans used and transformed it, including the Athenian playwright Euripides in his tragedy Hecabe; the Battle of Frogs and Mice, an animal fable that satirizes the Iliad; Virgil's Aeneid, a foundation epic of ancient Rome from the ashes of Troy; and the imperial Greek orator Dio Chrysostom's contentious Oration 11 that claims that Homer was wrong and the Trojans actually won the war.

This course is suitable for students who are embarking on the study of Latin, and an excellent review for students who have studied Latin previously.
