Abstract:

Contemporary Western society revolves around celebrity--and ancient Greek culture was no different, as this program demonstrates with perceptive comparisons of the two worlds. Scholarly analysis and splendid re-enactments bring new life to Homer's epic, giving it both a historical and personal context. For long-ago Greek listeners enraptured with famous warriors and athletes, Homer fashioned a subtle moral dilemma: can one pursue fortune and recognition without endangering a far more valuable treasure--namely, the love and stability of family? Clearly, The Odyssey still engenders sociologically relevant discussion.
