The Iliad and the Odyssey are two of the world’s oldest pieces of literature and the foundations of much of the Western literary tradition. For centuries, primary education focused on the memorization of Homer. Written in a composite dialect of Ancient Greek, Homer’s work has been translated into hundreds of languages. In this special NHM Discussion, we will explore the history and impact of the Homeric corpus. From the well-known epics to lost poems, we will explore why Homer matters today more than ever.
