    Translated and revised by Robert Fagles, this edition of The Iliad provides a readable version of the ancient tale of the Trojan Wars. Designed to make the flow of this classic poem accessible to modern readers, the translator has not attempted to produce a literal line-for-line translation of the original work by Homer. This version provides readers with a faithful but flexible rendition of the famous story of the siege of ancient Troy. The subject matter is filled with references to war and violent behavior, pagan gods and goddesses, along with references to the passions of men, so readers should be prepared to confront such issues if they choose to pick up this classic book. This resource is included in the Well Planned Gal Ancient Civilizations’ curriculum. 600 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    This is the Robert Fagles translation of the complete epic story of Troy that was written by Homer. It's a great translation that shares all the adventure and poetry of the text in modern verse. This is a classic story that most people don't take the time to examine, but reading the complete account is very rewarding. Characters like Helen, Paris, Hector, Achilles, and Olympian gods come to life. This edition boasts many great features, including a 64-page introduction that analyzes the story and highlights the main points, a guide for pronouncing names, maps of regions involved in the story, and notes on the translation. Every tenth line of the book is numbered for easy reference or group reading and discussion. Though still not a light read, this edition of the amazing tale is the most readable and absorbing complete version that I have seen. 684 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    The first of four units in the MFW high school program, this one is considered foundational to the rest and covers Bible, history and English and is worth 3 full-year credits (1 credit per subject). The lesson plans are designed for the students to work independently the majority of the week, with a parent-student conference and discussion of topics covered on Fridays. You will need to add math and science to the curriculum (MFW recommends Saxon Math with DIVE CDs for math and Apologia Science) and may also want to consider adding foreign language, logic or other electives. For Bible and history, students will read through the Old Testament along with Taking the Old Testament Challenge. The Old Testament Readings are also central to the ancient history study along with Notgrass Exploring World History. Students will fill in an Ancient History Timeline Book to record events from their reading. There are comprehension questions, map work and service projects as well. In English, the focus is on essay writing, particularly the argumentative essay, and students will write five of these during the year. Literature from the periods covered is also read and analyzed from a Christian perspective.
