From the Quicklet on Homer’s Iliad:

At the heart of The Iliad, Homer’s fantastical epic of gods and larger-than-life heroes, there beats the essence of the human drama in all of its complexity. In its epic scope, the story caters to nearly every kind of literary taste by providing a unique mix of action, politics, romance, mythology, and spirituality. If one were so inclined, it is even possible to draw some lessons in self-help out of this story.

The Iliad, in vivid detail, illustrates what it means to appreciate life by showing the horrors and brutality of war. In doing so, it provides lessons in love, duty, honor, courage, and loyalty. The characters inspired me through their unwavering dedication to the ideals which they held in such high regard. Even amidst the corrupt ambitions of power-hungry leaders and even the fickle nature of the gods, the heroes believed enough in themselves to know that their actions, as individuals and as unified people, could change the world. They believed—if they fought, if they loved, if they lived, if they died—that their deeds would be worthy of being remembered well after the chaos of their own circumstances. If this message of transcendence held no truth, then The Iliad itself would not have endured down through the centuries.

The Iliad is a story of hope against seemingly impossible odds, for both sides—if you care to consider it fully—and it will change the way you see the world.

From the Quicklet on Homer’s Odyssey:

The story of Odysseus in Homer’s Odyssey is the quintessential story of the hero. The struggles that plague Odysseus are symbols for the sufferings all humans encounter and endure. Odysseus’ encounters with gods and monsters reinforce the idea that facing challenges is part of the human condition. His psychological and physical battles illuminate the necessity to rise above things such as greed, fear, temptation, and selfishness to focus on what is really important: the love of family.

Like Odysseus, humans are at their best when we are able to stay strong in times of crisis, resisting the urge to give in to darker thoughts or feelings. Even today, the values upheld in the Odyssey serve as a beacon for those struggling to face life’s challenges.
