Link to Lombardo reading Homer's Iliad, Book I in Greek

http://wiredforbooks.org/iliad/

You can follow along if you have D.B. Monro & T.W. Allen version of the Iliad (Oxford Univ. Press). You can either listen to the entire file at once (~ 60 minutes) or select shorter segments.

There is also a link of Wilfried Stroh reading Vergil's The Aeneid in Latin; however, I have not listened to this file yet.

ENA TO XELIDONI (Greek song)

Hi,

One of my favourite Greek songs is Ena To Xelidoni (One The Sparrow). It represents to the Greeks struggle, hope and freedom. It is written by Odysseas Elytis, winner of the 1979 Nobel Prize in Literature for his work Axion Esti (Worthy It Is).

Here are the lyrics (in Modern Greek) to the song:

Ena To Xelido/ni

You shall not pass?

I was just reminded of Gandalf's line in The Lord of the Rings, which I saw before learning Latin, the language that fixed me grammatically...

...is this line grammatically incorrect!? *gasp*

I use one part of quite regularly but outside of that I am lost.
How do I find out the meaning of a Greek inflected form. I entered my word in a search field but I did not get results.
Thanks in advance.

Aeolians

I studied "Classical Societies" for a semester in high school. From what I remember*, the textbook divided Ancient Greece between Dorians and Ionians. It wasn't until I started looking at the language that I learnt there was a third race.

My question is, can anyone direct me to website that has a map showing the three races? Or, could anyone give me a basic rundown of whereabouts the Aeolians lived?

Troy - The movie

You all know there's a new movie about Troy. They found a very original title: the movie is entitled Troy!
A fabulous cast, good publicity, ... what do you want more?
Maybe a good movie?

I went to see this movie. And I know there are aways little historic mistakes in this kind of movies. But mostly it does not disturb the performance. Nevertheless, after this movie I was very disapointed! And I was not ...
