Please make sure that you are prepared for your "Quest," which will take place on Monday! You had a practice quest today. For those of you that missed class, look at the previous post, where you will find a piece of poetry entitled "Leda and the Swan." Can you interpret this piece based upon your previous schema? What is the poet attempting to say about Helen? This is what you should anticipate for the actual quest...pieces of poetry alluding/referencing The Iliad. The best way to prepare is to make sure you have read the sections assigned to you in class, and the make sure you are familiar with each of the following characters : HELEN, ACHILLES, PRIAM, PARIS, MENELAUS, AGAMEMNON, IPHIGENIA, HECTOR, and PATROCLUS!
I look forward to seeing you on Monday, my young friends!
