    We were excited to welcome Joel Christensen for an Online Open House. The title of the discussion is “Homer’s Thebes: Epic Rivalries and the Appropriation of Mythical Pasts,” based on his research and collaboration with Elton T. E. Barker. The discussion took place on Friday, March 6 at a.m. EST, and was recorded. Read more. My title refers to Homer, not Walter Scot’s poem of feuds on the English and Scottish border. But the resonance is something to be remembered. I’ve been reading WF Jackson Knight’s Many-Minded Homer, a collection of lecture notes written in and edited into book form in by John D Christie and published.

    Dimock proceeds Book by Homeric Book. At times he retells the epic tale. At others he dwells on this or that thematic highlight or difficulty. He draws on etymology, especially with reference to the names of the characters. It is the 'pain' which he hears out of the many-minded and much test Odysseus which gives the twenty-four Books their axis. W T.
