-Ideas about narrative
-Feminist ways of reading
- Literary value and the canon

I personally go for either ideas about the narrative, as you could really get stuck into it with theories behind what the events could symbolise and even go as far as they reflect back on Homer?
or Literary value and the canon sumply because I'm not sure how it would relate to feminism (Unless you're comenting on tha amount of female dieties show up and aphrodite sticking her nose in wth Helen and Paris or the women of troy praying to stop diomedes)
if you haven't, I would highly recomend watching Overly Sarcastic's take on the Iliad, especially to help with th narrative theory as it could give insight to how somebody else interprets the narrative and the ideas formed from analysis https://youtu.be/faSrRHw6eZ8
