The Iliad

Achilles has a nasty temper. Hector is foolish to risk so much for his own glory. Agamemnon seems greedy but noble. The morales are not disguised in many symbols or allegories- they are presented often in dialogue between characters. How violent this story is! How wondrous strange this old world seems. Next: The Odyssey of Homer
