Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
This week on Inquiry we talk with MADELINE MILLER. Ms Miller teaches Latin and Ancient Greek and has studied at the Yale School of Drama, specializing in adapting classical tales for modern audiences. Her first novel is THE SONG OF ACHILLES, a dramatic and complex retelling of the story of Achilles and the Trojan War through the eyes of Achilles' romantic interest, Patroclus. Tune in and learn about how Madeline Miller fleshed out the ancient characters of Achilles, Patroclus, Agamemnon and re-imagined the gods to create this engaging and thrilling novel.
