CLGR 401
Homer Spring 2025
Division I

Class Details

The Homeric epics (Iliad and Odyssey) are foundational works of ancient Greek literature. They offer valuable insight into early Greek society, religion, and culture, and constitute some of our earliest representations of the most famous Greek gods and heroes. The narratives about the Trojan War and its aftermath attributed to Homer also shape much of later Greek literature, both poetry and prose. In this course, we will read extensive selections from Homeric poetry in its original Greek, along with additional readings (primary and/or secondary) in English.
