Abstract

This essay, which is adapted from my opening lecture for the "Page and Stage" series in White Plains Public Library (delivered October 4, 2009), argues through a reading of the first ten words of Homer's Iliad that the poem prompts us to reflect on our core values without entangling ourselves in the passions and paradoxes of contemporary debates.
