For thousands of years, Homer's ancient epic poem the Iliad has enchanted readers from around the world. When you join Professor Vandiver for this lecture series on the Iliad , you'll come to understand what has enthralled and gripped so many people. Her compelling 12-lecture look at this literary masterpiece - whether it's the work of many authors or the "vision" of a single blind poet - makes it vividly clear why, after almost 3,000 years, the Iliad remains not only among the greatest adventure stories ever told but also one of the most compelling meditations on the human condition ever written. As you'll learn, the grandeur and immediacy of Homer's world would seem to defy time and space. Throughout these lectures, you'll explore this legendary era in brilliant, unforgettable hues. You'll meet its towering heroes who thirst for honor and the gods who inspired and instigated them. You'll go deep inside the shattering battles at Troy that act out mankind's awesome passions for glory, love, and vengeance. But more than that, you'll focus on the timeless human issues this masterpiece raises, all of them evoked by the power of a single dramatic question: Why does Achilles rage? The limits of freedom, the common humanity we share, the line between justice and revenge, the nature of destiny, the meaning of life - Professor Vandiver uses the Iliad as a potent lens through which to study them all.

I enjoyed listening to these lectures on the Iliad. Although I want to say that you're probably cheating yourself out a cool experience by listening to the lectures without first reading the text, I can say from having done it, that the lectures are accessible for someone who hasn't read the text. On the flip side, I think I had a much greater appreciation and ability to retain what she was talking about having carefully read the text first.

Just one criticism, she tends to be a little stiff in her delivery, though, nevertheless, she does a good job in bringing out the themes and background information, etc associated with this very, very special text. You'll definitely get storyline, though the lectures are clearly nothing even close to a simple retelling. I almost wanted to reread the text after I was done with the lectures.
