The Iliad is an epic poem that tells of the Trojan War. It's bloody and violent and one of the most well-known literary records of humans in brutal and rapturously deluded combat. Now a new musical interpretation of stories from the Iliad comes to Vermilion. Joe Goodkin presents "The Blues of Achilles" at USD.
If you're not able to take in tonight's performance, we've invited Joe Goodkin back to the program with insight into a modern interpretation of the Iliad that includes themes of rage and grief and traumatic injury.
