“Sing, O Goddess, sing of the rage of Achilles...” I love the Iliad. The characters, the setting, the interactions. The scale is epic, and yet so intimate. It was foundational to the ancient Greek identity. City-states claimed these heroes as their ancestors, which gave them prestige and honor. It’s no wonder this story has survived for thousands of years! Who’s your favorite hero from Greek myth? Mine is Odysseus. #theiliad #greekmythology #ancientstories #classics #mythology #hector #achilles #patroclus #agammemnon #ancientgreece #culturalanthropology #thetrojanwar #theodyssey #epicstories

Whew! It is definitely a Monday (and for me it’s really only “second Saturday” since I’m off for the next three days 😆 so I shouldn’t be complaining )... 🌼 . My lovely friend and I threw a autumn party yesterday which was loads of fun but of course loads of work. Today was tear-down day and that’s not so bad normally... but when it was a rooftop party and the roof is atop a three story house THAT IS A LOT OF STAIRS. Needless to say I’ve got my workout in already and now I’m ready for a nap 🌻😴 . What are your Monday plans?? I do think sometime tonight I’ll be watching a spooky movie. I like subtle horror so I’m thinking a Lynch movie or I’ve heard good things about Under The Skin with Scarlet Johansson (or however it’s spelled )...I have no idea how you spell her name ). Do you have subtle horror recommendations? (other examples include It Follows, The Witch, Hereditary ) 🧟‍♂️ . . .

I've been reading 8 of these books for the past several months. Im somewhere in the middle of all of them. A few, I've read more than twice. I don't know why I am this way, but reading reminds me that I'm not alone.

🌟 Five Star Reads 🌟 × The Shining by Stephen King x Circe by Madeline Miller x The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller x Girl Woman Other by Bernardine Evaristo These are some of the books I've given five stars to recently (although I've given out a few others as well - must have been a lucky few months for reading ). I love that these books are so varied; horror, mythical retellings, contemporary own voices! The Song of Achilles and Girl Woman Other have become new favourite books! And everytime I read a five star book, I get so excited to keep reading to find more faves 💫 Have you read any of these books? #QOTD What have been some of your recent five star reads?

¡Buenos días! ☀️Hoy lunes comenzamos la semana fuerte con un grande de los grandes: Homero. 🤔 Pero, ¿quién fue este hombre? ¿Existió? Para intentar dar respuesta a esta pregunta, en el siglo XVIII con August Wolf se denominó a este debate “la cuestión homérica”, aunque desde siglos antes se llevaba hablando de este tema. A partir de este momento se originan dos corrientes: los analistas, que defienden que La Ilíada y La Odisea fueron escritas por varios autores a lo largo del tiempo y que fueron el producto de la unión de distintos poemas; y los unitarios, quienes afirman que ambas obras fueron elaboradas por un único autor. 📜 Lo que sí se acepta de forma general, es que ambos poemas son el resultado de una tradición oral transmitida a lo largo de distintas generaciones. Ya en el siglo XX, es la teoría unitaria la que predomina, aunque el autor Werner Jaeger propuso que La Ilíada y La Odisea son de distintos poetas. Esta idea se basa en que La Ilíada es mucho más antigua en el tiempo que La Odisea debido a las luchas y gestas de héroes que canta, hechos propios de los cantos heroicos más antiguos; mientras que La Odisea muestra a un hombre tranquilo y astuto con otro tipo de mentalidad. 🌊 Actualmente se piensa mayoritariamente que ambas obras fueron escritas por un mismo autor: Homero. Esta idea se sostiene sobre la unidad estética que hay en ambos poemas y que las convierte en obras de una inmensa calidad. Respecto a la teoría de Jaeger, se contraargumenta que las tradiciones sobre las que se compusieron las obras son diferentes, lo cual no indica que necesariamente tengan que ser de autores distintos. Para terminar, a lo largo del tiempo se han propuesto teorías llamativas: 💡Según Samuel Butler, La Odisea pudo ser escrita por una mujer. 💡Homero fue un hombre iletrado que dictó ambos poemas a un escriba en el VI a.C o antes. 💡El texto escrito no existió hasta época helenística. ❓Y tú, ¿tienes alguna opinión al respecto? . . #Filologi ́a #Filologi ́aClásica #Homero #LaIli ́ada #LaOdisea #Literatura #Poesi ́a #Philology #Homer #TheOdyssey #TheIliad #GreekLiterature

In the Land of the Feathered Serpent was inspired by the journey of Odysseus in Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey. It was also inspired by my own years of travel in Central America in the 1980s and beyond. The characters in Feathered Serpent, and their relationships to protagonist Odel, are modeled after those in The Odyssey. And, in most cases there is also name equivalency. Odysseus/Odel: Odysseus was the legendary Greek king of Ithaca and the hero of Homer’s Odyssey. The character of Odel is a literary metaphor for Odysseus, in both name and role. Odysseus undertook a great journey as he wandered home after the end of the Trojan War. Similarly, Odel confronts many challenges and gains wisdom on his own journey. Instead of the Trojan War, of course, Odel’s journey takes place during the civil wars in Nicaragua and Guatemala. Odel's life goes on after the novel ends - he may reappear (in a guest spot ) in a future novel. -Richard Brusca #richardbrusca #rickbrusca #centralamerica #mesoamerica #latinoamérica #latinamericanstudies #lasa #latinamericanhistory #centralamericanstudies #centralamericaliving #maya #mayans #mayahistory #mayanhistory #mayaarchaeology #mayaculture #yucatanmaya #featheredserpent #inthelandofthefeatheredserpent #quetzalcoatl #quetzalcóatl #nicaraguanhistory #distritofederal #personaljourney #irancontra #theodyssey #odysseus #homersodyssey #ulysses #jamesjoyceulysses

Found this #writingmeme posted in one of my writing groups, and just had to share. Pretty sure I’m already doing a “cover” of Aeschylus, Euripides, Sophocles, and Homer 😂😂😂 (Though, definitely not the horrid “fanfiction” that is “The Telegony” , as poor Telemachus doesn’t need that and also, WTF. Also Telemachus/Athena = OTP ). • • • #writingmemes #writerslife #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writersofig #preptober #nanowrimo #nanowrimo2020 #amwriting #authorsofinstagram #authorslife #greekmythology #greekmyths #greekclassics #theodyssey #theiliad #theoresteia

10/18/20 Yoga, amongst many art forms of vitality, is also an art of listening. - If you’ve ever listened to a flat tire on the road, you know exactly what it sounds & feels like. - After having just had my tires filled the other day, I was a little perplexed at this mornings flat tire phenomena, while also grateful it happened while I was driving home after teaching this mornings yoga class- as opposed to happening on the way to teach class. - I was able to pull off the road almost immediately- And cannot emphasize enough how grateful I have been throughout the decades of driving all across the country- to have a AAA membership for emergency roadside assistance. - While waiting for roadside service, I remembered that I also had a trunk full of books that I had packed for resale- Which all needed to be moved out of the way so I could access the spare tire... - Moving volumes such as: “The Art Of Living” “The Bhagavad Gita” “Taoism And Confucianism” “The Odyssey” “The Story Of Mankind” “The World Is Flat” “The Almost Complete History Of The World” “A Brief History Of Time” “The Future Of Life” “Conversations Before The End Of Time” ... - I love books, also having too many, I’ve also been practicing the art of detachment & letting go. - The spare tire is safely on my car, the battery is checked, I filled up the gas tank, have made an appointment to bring my car to the auto shop tomorrow between teaching classes, & soon it will be time today to turn back around & drive from home to teach my afternoon Surrender (Yin ) Yoga class. - On with the dance of life. - If you don’t have AAA, I highly recommend it!

This book is one of my most prized possession. Given to me for my 18th by my Granny and Grandad it’s one book I know I will keep for life. This book is certainly what caused me to become obsessed with buying beautiful editions of The Odyssey and The Iliad so I could one day have a shelf full of them. My love for Homer all stemmed from my very first year in A-Level Classical Civilisations. As a child I have been mesmerised by Greek mythology and sitting in those lessons made me feel like a child again. The stories of Odysseus travelling back from Troy and the great Achilles avenging the death of Patroclus captured my imagination like never before. This obsession in turn caused me to become obsessed with rewrites of Homer. Writing my masters dissertation on Circe and The Silence Of The Girls was possibly the only essay I have ever really enjoyed writing. I’m constantly looking out for new rewrites especially those that include the forgotten women that we see within these pages and I’m always excited to see what new stories these writers have created. #classics #literature #bookstagram #homer #theodyssey #theiliad #booklover

Book buying ban... • I have to admit, I have gone completely crazy in buying books the past few months... my retail therapy maybe? I don’t really know, but oh man did I go for it...😂 but a couple of weeks ago, I have decided to stop buying any more books until the 1st October. I know it doesn’t sound that great as it is only a three weeks ban. But to me who is a certified book hoarder😂, it will be a step towards the right direction! I last purchased a book on 3 September and two weeks in, I am doing good! There have been a couple of times where I really really wanted to buy certain books but I stopped myself! 💪🏼 I can do it! I can’t wait till 1st October😂 I have been adding a lot of books to my shopping cart already🙈 Anyway, here are the books I last purchased a few weeks ago. Have you read any of these? Look at those Barnes and Noble Leatherbound and those Clothbound! Aren’t they just gorgeous? Have you done any book buying ban before? • •

“There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.” - Homer . I really appreciate that Homer too knew the value of a good night’s sleep. . What kind of sleeper are you? A light sleeper? A dreamer? A sleepwalker? A sleep talker? 😴 . I’ve been known to talk in my sleep. I often have the weirdest and most realistic dreams. I am no sleepwalker by default but I did go for a shower (while sleeping ) once. Oh, and I went on a quest for snacks once at a friend’s house. But that’s it, I promise! 🙈 Now tell me what kind of sleeper you are!🤍 .
