Tony and Jim,
Both essays are available in a single volume published by the New York Review of Books, which includes a third essay on Bespaloff's reading by Hermann Broch. "War and the Iliad," 2005.

If you can, Simone Weil's essay on the Iliad: a Poem of Force is excellent for revealing a modern appeal; Rachel Bespaloff has written an essay which may in response to Weil's. Both done during WWII, I think.

On a note related to our very interesting discussion of the Iliad: I'll be teaching the Iliad for the first time this coming Fall in a Comparative Mythology course. Any suggestions for teaching it? Suggestions for individual or group activities, recommended approaches, companion texts, other works to pair with it, etc., would all be appreciated.
