  • Zeus The Human Or Priam God
    838 words
    In Homers Iliad, Priam, the human King of Troy, and Zeus, the divine King of the gods, are only separated by the gift of immortality.

Homer draws these similariti...

  • Receive A Proper Burial Epic Hero
    1,766 words
    (Essay E) Iliad 24: The Rough Road to Compassion. Homer, throughout The Iliad, illustrates that although it can be difficult to reach, the rough road to compassion is noble and ultimately superior to the easier paths of anger and rage. In Book 22, Achilles demonstrates mindless rage as he desecrates the body of the Trojan warrior and son of King Priam, Hector.

  • Homer Shows Trojan War
    584 words
    Theme Analysis In Homers Iliad, war is depicted as horrible, bloody, and fruitless. There are no clear winners in The Iliad. Many people die in vain because of arrogant and emotional decisions made by men. Achilles directly causes the death of his friend by first refusing to fight, leaving the Greeks at a disadvantage, and then poorly advising his friend Patroclus to join the other fighters. Even the initial cause of the war, Paris kidnapping of Helen, a Greek woman, is a rash and selfish act. T...
