Immortalized in such classic works as Homer's Iliad and Odyssey and the great tragedies of Aeschylus and Sophocles, the myths of ancient Greece revolve around potent psychological themes and fundamental human fears and desires. The stories themselves are riveting; the characters, unforgettable. In this thoroughly engaging course, classics scholar and theater director and producer Professor Peter Meineck brings the timeless stories of the Greek gods and heroes to life, examining what they might have meant to the culture that produced them and exploring their far-reaching influence on Western thought and literature.
