Part of From the Vault. Part of New Critical Television.

02/20/1958

Based on the 1958 book The Wrath of Achilles, The Iliad of Homer by I.A. Richards. In this third episode, "Professor and Lowell Television Lecturer at Harvard University" I. A. Richards reads from books six through nine of his abridged translation of the Iliad, The Wrath of Achilles. Richards concentrates his attention during this reading on Hector, whose image he presents via several slides of sculptures, and his attempt to save the city of Troy. The primary camera set-up has Richards reading directly to the camera in close-up and medium close-up. A secondary set-up presents Richards and enlarged images of the statues in the same frame. Summary and select metadata for this record was submitted by John Marx & Mark Cooper.
