Ransom Deep Dive

Deep Dive into Ransom this summer and boost your ATAR...
Ransom is David Malouf’s take on Homer’s Iliad. Lyrical, immediate and heartbreaking, Malouf’s fable engraves the epic themes of the Trojan war onto a perfect miniature – themes of war and heroics, hubris and humanity, chance and fate, the bonds between soldiers, fathers and sons, all brilliantly recast for our times.
Ransom Deep Dive runs over ten short live-streamed sessions. Summer is the perfect time to dip into your VCE texts while you’re relaxed and unwinding! Sit back and enjoy having the story read to you. Follow along in your text. Key ideas are unpacked and there’s a Q&A time at the end. You can join the conversation or just listen… no pressure to speak up.
