Product Description

Western civilization begins with the two greatest books of the ancient world, the Iliad and the Odyssey 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. The Iliad 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. The Odyssey was the original great adventure story and character study. The Iliad and the Odyssey 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 set includes the Iliadthe Student Guide, the Teacher Guide, and the DVD set.

    I joined my 7th and 9th graders in a study of these classic texts this school year. We shared in the readings, watched the DVD lectures, and used the study guides to dig in for analysis. The DVDs are extremely entertaining. The young man who was our guide was very knowledgeable and his enthusiasm for these tales was contagious. I was actually saddened to return Odysseus to his homeland. (Oh, and since homeschooling is actually about the kids, know that they enjoyed it very much, too.) I have taught these books to my older kids, but the MP materials are well worth the time and money for a memorable, entertaining, and educational trek through the Iliad and the Odyssey.
