W19-85 THE ODYSSEY—A JOURNEY INTO AND BEYOND SELF
January 17 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
An event every week that begins at 1:00 PM on Thursday, repeating until March 7, 2019
Composed over 2,500 years ago, but still vibrantly relevant, “The Odyssey” by Homer tells a deeply personal story of challenge, love, battle, and survival under the most exacting of circumstances. Take this profound journey with Odysseus and experience his relationship with the gods, the fates that stalk him, and the many powerful adversaries and alien creatures he encounters. We will unravel modern social and psychological symbolism as we follow Odysseus on his arduous journey home. True to the spirit of Homer, we will read this classic interactively. The text for this course is Robert Fitzgerald’s translation of Homer’s “The Odyssey.”
