The Romance of the Classics

Well I'm now starting to focus my "Sauron's gaze" intensely on my two uni subjects. I went and got the reader for the Homeric Hymns subject today, looks really interesting. Major focus on the four long Homeric Hymns: to Apollo, Hermes, Aphrodite and Demeter, and a little bit on Dionysus. Then onto the Epic Cycle: the fragments of Troy stories - what happened before and after the Iliad. I don't know much about them, so that'll be interesting I suspect. Plus it's all an excuse to get jiggy again with Greek myth and ritual.
