Cíle předmětu
The course "Reading Homer's Odyssey" introduces students to the Homeric world by close reading of selected portions of the foundational text of Western literature, ancient Greek epic Odyssey. Following the completion of the course, students will become familiar with the contents and the genesis of the work ("Homeric question"), its metrical and linguistic features, as well as basic notions of Homeric society, morality, religion, warfare and politics.
Given the influence Odyssey exerted in European culture, good knowledge of its contents will benefit not only classicists, but also students of European national literatures, students of religion and art historians.
Lectures are held in English, the course is therefore well suited for incoming Erasmus students.
