The first part of this class was lost -- some glitch with the iPhone.  But it was essentially an introduction to the issues continued in the part that starts here: the differences between the Iliad and the Odyssey in the kind of hero being depicted, and the goals of that hero, and especially how those differences are brought out in the various fates of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra, Menelaus and Helen, and finally Odysseus and Penelope.   Female characters.  Hospitality depicted with respect to the suitors and the travelers.  The nested narratives of the Odyssey.
