This course has taught me about the Homerian epics and Ancient Greece in general than 4 years of studying Ancient Greek did tbh I mean to be fair we only covered the Iliad and the Odyssey for like half of one school year but still Vandiver is such an excellent lecturer that I ve actually already picked up two of her courses the one on the Odyssey and the one on Greek Tragedies I m going to listen to the one on the Odyssey next because from what she says in this course these two were meant to be listened to together

I ve been trying to read The Iliad for months and could not stay focused long enough to get through a few pages So many characters and the endless battles Disclaimer I still haven t read it However I have now listened to this lecture series by Elizabeth Vandiver It is a great introduction and overview of the story What I thought was most interesting was the explanation of honor family life gods and class systems in 800 BC vs today All of the same elements are present today but they do not have the same meaning If you read this book and transpose your own experiences onto the characters you could be vastly misinterpreting the story But one thing I can say with some confidence Achilles was a real jerk Another favorite part when Ms Vandiver talks about the continued relevance of this 2500 year old story she recites Achilles in the Trenches by Patrick Shaw Stewart from WWIvery touching
