Some mixed YouTube links related to Homer

There is, of course, an enormous amount of information about Homer on the internet. I personally have become captivated by Emily Wilson’s readings of her translation of the Odyssey; check it out if you haven’t seen it. A few weeks ago, a friend of mine recommended the clip with Boris Johnson where he recites Homer’s Iliad in Greek. According to my friend, it’s actually quite accurate and has good pronunciation too!
