Indeed, the Bronze Age Aegean was a distant memory even to the original audiences of these works.\r\n\r\nBut age seems only to have burnished the luster of this epic.\r\n\r\nIt may be precisely because of its very strangeness and distance that generation after generation of readers have come to love it so much.\r\n\r\nThis strangeness and distance throw sharply into focus the timeless human issues that ride along on Odysseus’s journey, voyaging to strange lands on the shores of wine-dark seas, dealing face-to-face with gods and monsters.\r\n\r\nA Single Riveting Question... and the Others It Raises\r\n\r\nThe epic’s exploration centers around a single question about the protagonist, and the two related questions it immediately suggests:\r\n\r\nWhy does Odysseus long so powerfully to go home?\r\nWhat holds people together and keeps them going in extreme situations such as war or shipwreck?\r\nWhy do we love our own so strongly?\r\n\r\nIt is this universal theme that seems of paramount importance. What does it mean to live?\r\n\r\nProfessor Vandiver builds her analyses skillfully around meticulous, insightful examinations of the most important episodes in the Odyssey.\r\n\r\nShe explains the cultural assumptions that lie behind Homer’s lines, and you join her in weighing the basic critical and interpretive issues.\r\n\r\nJust as knowledge of the Trojan War legend is necessary for understanding the Iliad—available as a companion course—the Odyssey assumes that its audience knows how the war ended and what happened next.\r\n\r\nLearn the Story between the Epics
