The Tales We Tell Episode 6: The Feminine Iliad

In this two-part episode of The Tales We Tell, Clara Cook is joined by the family patriarch and fan of the Homeric epic, David Manasian to discuss female interpretations of the epic poems of The Iliad and The Odyssey. In part one we examine the women of Greek Myth and both the male and female views of the stories that surround them. We ask whether women really were so oppressed in Ancient Greece and if a woman's view of war is underrepresented in literature.
