Homer I

Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:
http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2009-01/12/content_485363.htm

Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. This lesson goes back to the beginning of my "great books" columns in 2009. What are the so-called "Great Books"? Are you interested in reading them?
2. Are you familiar with "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" by Homer? If so, what do you know about them?
3. Can you think of any books or movies that are "Homeric"?
