I was informed after class that I am week off in my calculations: in my mind, it was Week 6 this week… but it’s Week 7, because Chuseok ate our Week 6!
Therefore, I’m going to postpone your homework assignment. I’ve uploaded Oh Brother Where Art Thou, but I have a feeling that with exams coming so soon, it will be unlikely you’ll even watch it before next class, so… we’re going to watch the film in class. This is me being nice.
Once again: on 10 October, we will watch the film Oh Brother Where Art Thou? in class. We will discuss the film, and its treatment of the Odyssey story, after exams, so I am giving you a copy of the film to watch again and review for 22 October (when our discussion will happen).
To prepare for our class on 10 October, you can (a) pre-watch the movie, or (b) read Bulfinch’s treatment of the Odyssey narrative. (It’s Chapter XXIX in the .epub version of Bulfinch that I have uploaded on this site; Ulysses is just the Roman name for Greek Odysseus.)
