glaukopis: Woman in classical dress (classics)
I have handed in my honors thesis.

It weighs in at thirty-four pages (plus an eight-page chart as the appendix). The title is "Standing Between: Supernatural Events in the Iliad," which conveniently gives away the subject. It's hard to explain the premise without sounding pretentious, but, as I once put it, it considers the plot in terms of the reinforcement and dissolution of boundaries between the divine and mortal worlds. I had the first stirrings of this idea in GRK 312, when the professor asked if anyone else was bothered by Achilles' horse talking; it seemed too strange, he said. I didn't speak up at the time. Instead, I wrote about 10,600 words about why I think he's wrong there, which would seem to say a lot about my MO.
