Texts in the City: Ransom
No matter how compelling a novel or a film might be, if you have to study it, there’s always the risk you’ll end up hating it. Not any more! A gift to VCE students, their teachers (and of course life-long learners) Texts in the City is a weekly exploration of the classic texts – both old and new – that appear on the VCE English reading lists. This week, Ruby J Murray is joined by Australian Book Review editor Peter Rose to discuss Ransom, David Malouf’s reworking of Homer’s Iliad.
