The Iliad and the Arab Spring




The new book The Iliad (Homer) translated by Stephen Mitchell and currently in library is an excellent book that shows beyond doubt that the Arab Spring was inspired by this poem dating back over 2,700 years.
All European cultures have also been influenced by the Iliad and the Odyssey and the recent wars in North Africa are no exception.
The Iliad is a book to read or reread…
