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.
