Assignment for Tuesday, 11.17.20

Dear Cinemythologists,

On Tuesday, October 27, our unit on the Trojan War continues. Since we’ll be transitioning to the period after the war, the assignment will be all reading, no viewing.


  • Homer, Odyssey 1, 9, 11, 22, and 23

In a perfect world, we would have time to read all of the Odyssey, which is about the fraught return of Odysseus from Troy to his homeland of Ithaca. Like, the Iliad, the Odyssey spans a brief period of time, about a month or so in “real time,” with much of Odysseus’ ten-year journey told in flashback.

In class we’ll look at screen texts based on Homer’s “other” epic.
