Onsider The Heroic Ideal And The Role Of Fame In Ancient Poetry And Modern Cinema

This essay requires careful reading of both the Iliad and the Odyssey, with a detailed comparison to modern film. The writer should be expected to quote relevantly from both artworks. So films should be watched and literature read.

Intolerance by W.D. Griffiths
The Passion Of Joan Of Arc by Theodore Dreyer
Brother, Where Art Thou by Ethan And Joel Cohen
(any others that can be of relevance)

There should be a brief explanation of whether or not literature and film are comparable.
See Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno
Also Mckinnon. I will upload the relevant material.
