On the Volokh Conspiracy, guest conspirator Michael Rappaport praises a lecture course on the Iliad and another course on the Odyssey, both taught by Elizabeth Vandiver of the University of Maryland.

Well, how about that. Back in 1993, she was at the University of Georgia, and was the professor who taught my Roman History honors seminar. I remember her as one of the best professors I've had, able to spark everyone's interest in Livy, Virgil, Apuleius, the battle of Cannae, etc. Her new courses should be worth checking out.

Vandiver's lectures on the Odyssey are indeed superb. She is clear, rapid and direct.

I listened 5-6 months ago and just last week pulled out the CDs to revisit.
