New: Short courses at the CCL!

The CCL offers two new short courses on contemporary retellings of Greek myths, focusing on Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey.

Our understanding of classical literature has been enriched by modern authors who undertake creative interpretations and retellings of epics. In these short courses, you will read and discuss the Iliad and the Odyssey and discover the poems’ reception in the work of contemporary writers who have turned to the classics for inspiration.

Both courses are taught by Dr Isobel Hurst, whose research and publications focus on the reception of Greek and Latin literature in English. Isobel is the coordinator of the event series Sing in me, Muse: The Classical, the Critical, and the Creative.
