Students have been assigned the group project on the Iliad –
the official assignment was last Monday, day 58
each student is doing a Powerpoint for one of the 24 books of the Iliad
meanwhile, we have been doing the highlights (mainly the duels)
and contrasting them with the movie Troy
and discussing the legacy of the poem in the popular imagination –
students have been issued the most recent (Fagles) translation
and are invited to read the whole book!
