      The Iliad (Books ), the Epic Cycle, & the history of the Trojan War Eric Luttrell 9, views. Michio Kaku: The Universe in a Nutshell (Full Presentation) | Big Think - . The following is the entire article of Mr. THOMAS CARLYLE -- "The American Iliad in a Nutshell" -- as it appears in the August number of Macmillan's (London) Magazine.

    Summarizing Ideas in a Nutshell Have you ever been asked to describe your day in a nutshell? You need to summarize what happened in just a few words. The phrase in a nutshell dates back to 77 AD, when a Roman philosopher claimed that the epic poem The Iliad could fit on a parchment small enough to go inside a walnut shell. This, of course, was an exaggeration, but the idea. We get the idiom “in a nutshell” from a reference to The Iliad in Pliny the Elder’s book Natural History, written in Italy in 77 AD. In it he notes extraordinary human achievements, such as someone writing the whole Iliad on such a small piece of paper that it could fit inside a walnut shell.

    Another thing often compared to a nut-shelled Iliad was the camera obscura (see Case II, on Design, especially Exhibits 4, 4a, and 4b). “As in a nutshell, curious to behold,” wrote one anonymous encomiast, “Great HOMER’s ILIAD was inscrib’d of old” (p. 5). This is because the camera obscura offered a whole world in miniature. This book is an excellent first step in the exploration of Enlightenment thought. Unlike a lot of recent works on the Enlightenment, which tend too heavily toward the history, or lean too heavily on postmodern interpretations of the 18th century, Enlightenment in a Nutshell does a good job of presenting the case for the Enlightenment as it has traditionally been presented in the academy (at /5(11).
