Guess what my assignment is for school this week?
Read The Odyssey in its entirety, as well as read three lectures on the book, and a chapter about "Women in the Poems of Homer" in a different book. And that's just one class. I also have to read about 4 chapters (think 150ish pages in a normal-sized textbook) on diversity and globalization.
Why am I taking summer classes again?
Anyway, Homer is definitely book-related, so I figured I'd ramble a bit about The Odyssey. So far it's okay. Then again, I haven't even made it out of the first "book" yet. All in all, though, I'm actually comprehending about twice as much as I expected to. I think the information I read in "Women in the Poems of Homer" is helping me to understand what's going on a bit more, and I appreciate a bit of a heads up of what to expect before I dive into it.
395 pages to go. If you have read The Odyssey and have any tips to help me enjoy and/or comprehend the story more, I would super appreciate tips. I'd also be willing to read a review you might have written on it, if you'd leave your link in the comments.
On a similar note, I almost feel like I need to re-watch O Brother, Where Art Thou? but maybe it would be best to save for after I finish The Odyssey?
Did I mention what I get to read for the Summer C semester?
