An Introduction to Book 17 of the Iliad
This year’s Homer Multitext Summer Seminar at the Center for Hellenic Studies will focus on book 17 of the Iliad as transmitted in a variety of medieval manuscripts.
I wasn’t supposed to learn Greek. Growing up in Louisiana, French had always been my thing. I was a girl who enjoyed earning gold stars and the approval of my teachers, so even though I very much liked the unit on Greek mythology we had in 6th grade, when I had the opportunity to take Latin starting in 7th grade, I don’t think it even occurred to me to make the switch.
