The Greatest Journey of Them All: Reading Homer's Odyssey

Register for this Fall 2022 course on the new NYU SPS Academy of Lifelong Learning website.
Relive—or enjoy for the first time—the fabulous adventures of Odysseus as he journeys home to his wife and son after the Trojan War. In 10 sessions, explore Homer’s genius as an oral poet and share a work that sets nostalgia for home against a hunger for new experiences; describes battles between men and mythical creatures; and asks enduring questions: What is the cost of war? Can love withstand absence? What is the nature of free will? Should there be a limit to revenge? Fall 2022 tuition is $699.
