Congratulations!  You made it.

 

In great literature, art, music and film, we learn from the experiences of the characters. Geography of Self is a learning experience is designed to complement a reading of Homer's Iliad. 

 

NOW WHAT?

Read books, write stories, talk to people, play games and find your place in the world.  Here are some ideas:

 

  • Read one of the novels highlighted in Geography of Self

  • Research the monomyth across cultures

  • Compare the Greek hero Achilles with Rama from the Hindu Ramayana.

  • Research one or more of the people, historical movements explored in Unlikely Heroes

  • Create a multimedia biography on one of the unlikely heroes and share it.
