Mythology class update - January 9

Welcome back!

Today we begin with reviewing the "Rage of Achilles" and "The Cursed House of Atreus."  The students may want to re-read their Iliad plays and review their notes in preparation for the quiz over the Iliad next week.

We then plunged right in to our section on the Odyssey.  We read the first two stories about Telemachus looking for his father and about Odysseus being held by the sea nymph Calypso.

Homework:
1.  Please let me know if you have a preference for meeting at my home to watch "O Brother Where Art Thou" after we finish the Odyssey - would Friday, January 31 work for you?
2.  Keep working on your OMG project
3.  Your Iliad essays are now due on Friday, January 17th via email by 8pm.  I am still willing to offer commentary on essay outlines.
4. No discussion questions this week.
