Description

In an era where children are more likely to read Harry Potter than Homer, I believe it is urgent that we bring the ancient stories back.

The Iliad is Homer’s account of the anger of Achilles and the effect that anger — and the pride and anger of others — has on the lives of the Greeks and the Trojans.

My students LOVE studying this classic Greek work with me! There is so much of our own ways and our own world that are brightly illuminated in the pages of this epic. 

The applicability of Achilles’ rage and Paris’s pride always BLOWS THE MINDS of my students. 

Enroll now and together we’ll talk of Troy and you will see for yourself why the English poet John Sheffield wrote:

Read Homer once, and you can read no more,
For all things else will seem so dull and poor,
You’l wish ‘t unread; but oft upon him look,
And you will hardly need another book.

Classes will run from September 8th to November 10th and will meet from 1 – 2 PM (Mountain Time) every Wednesday.

About the instructor:
Joe Wolverton II, J.D., was a constitutional attorney; a professor of law and history at two universities in Tennessee; a highly-sought speaker on constitutional issues for over 15 years; a journalist with hundreds of articles on liberty, history, the Constitution, as well as the Founding Era published in dozens of national and international outlets; and he is the author of the books The Real James Madison and “What Degree of Madness?”: Madison’s Method to Make America STATES Again. His latest book is the best-selling The Founders’ Recipe, a 330-page collection of Joe’s own research on the sources of the Constitution and selections from the 37 authors most often quoted by the Founding Generation, nearly all of whom have been erased from our curriculum by the educrats in control of government-managed schools. He now devotes his life to restoring the names and the knowledge of those forgotten men.
