Shelia Murnaghan

University of Pennsylvania

Homer’s Iliad primarily celebrates male heroism on the battlefield. However, the poem also raises women’s voices, especially through the genre of lament. Sheila Murnaghan, the Allen Memorial Professor of Greek, at Penn, explores the distinctive perspectives of the Iliad’s women on heroic values and gender relations in wartime. Murnaghan’s research focuses on ancient Greek poetry. Her recent publications include a book on the classics and children’s literature, co-authored with Deborah Roberts; and a translation of Euripides’ Medea.
