Mythology & Theater (The Aeneid)
The past two years' Mythology and History classes evolved into a deep study of and fantastic performances of of The Illiad and The Odyssey. The students built and sprang from their own Trojan horse and acted out the entirety of Homer's epic poem, learning myths, history, and language in the process.
This year, the class will take on the mythology and history of Rome. We'll learn about the many similarities and differences from Greece history and mythology. We'll also read the epic poem The Aeneid by Virgil. It is the myth of Rome's birth from the ashes of Troy by the exiled Trojan prince Aeneas. In addition to learning the classic poem, and studying the characters found throughout the tale, students will recite the stanzas, make historically appropriate costumes and props, and perform the play. We were amazed at how much the students enjoyed the experience last year and hope to have even more fun working on this year's camp!
