Homer Goes Home


Andrew Kern


The Odyssey is the greatest and most famous of the Home-coming stories (nostoi) that flowed out of the Trojan war. What does this great epic tell us about ourselves, what wisdom does it offer, how did it mate with the Iliad to give birth to one of the greatest  civilizations the world has ever seen? I have no idea. But I do like talking about things like this. This epic workshop explores ideas in the Odyssey and offers hints for how to read and teach Homer, or any great literature.
