Publisher Description:

Western civilization begins with the two greatest books of the ancient world, theIliad and theOdyssey by the Greek poet Homer. Traditionally dated to the 8th century B.C., these epics were the most important influences in the formation of Greek culture. TheIliad was the principal textbook in the schools of ancient Greece and Rome, and the primary authority in matters of ethics and morals, civic behavior, and military tactics. TheOdysseywas the original great adventure story and character study. TheIliadand theOdyssey have been enormously influential in Western literature and art, and are the perfect place to begin your study of Western culture and the Great Books. These Memoria Press editions feature the translations of Samuel Butler, which are both scholarly and easily accessible to younger students.

The Odyssey Set includes theOdyssey, the Student Guide, the Teacher Guide, and the DVD set.

Covers Iliad Books 1 - 24 and Odyssey Books 1-24; one lesson per book. Appendices include a section on Genealogies (Trojans and Greeks), Friends & Foes of Iliad, Greek and Trojan characters, Weaponry & Armor in Homer, Ship Terminology, and Character References. The Teacher Book for this study is a wraparound format with reduced copies of a full-text answer key. Helps for the teacher include Background & Drill, Discussion Help, Questions to mark for Tests, Teacher Notes, and Essays & Assignments.

The DVDs add an extra in-class type of dimension to these studies. Professionally done, these compelling lectures from knowledgeable classical instructor Sean Brooks provide background and cultural depth. One other great side benefit of watching these lectures is that the correct pronunciation for all the characters and places in these books will no longer be a mystery.
