This foundational text of the Western canon offers a window on the imaginative world of early Greece, a world shaped by its own particular societal structures, but enlivened by human interactions - and passions - which we recognise as being as complex and nuanced as our own.

She teaches Ancient Greek and Latin language and literature and social history; she has won an ANU teaching award and a national Carrick Citation for outstanding contributions to student learning.
