Homework for Wednesday, November 4

November 3, 2015

Below you will find attached some excerpts from the Iliad. Tomorrow we will listen to the last 120 lines of Book I. You may read those if you want. After listening to that section we will discuss the following section that you will read tonight. For homework please read Book IV lines 489-630 which starts on the ninth page of the file. Pay close attention to the description of the battle. Understand the use of epic simile (look up that term if you need to) and how Homer uses it to describe the scene. Also pay close attention to the death of Simoisius. Does its description make you think of anything else we’ve read?

Enjoy.
