Justice and Love in the Iliad

- Simone Weil argues that the way Homer presents war and the use of force in the Iliad, in all of its brutality, violence, and bitterness bathes the work in the light of love and justice (pg 25). The point Weil is making is that by depicting the suffering of all of these men regardless of their side, or strength Homer equalizes them in a “condition common to all men”(pg 25). Because Homer equalizes them the reader can feel empathy, or at least compassion for all of the men. However while Weil is correct about how Homer’s descriptions of war and force reveal justice and love, she is wrong in thinking that justice and love are mere “accents” to the Iliad, and progress through the story “withou...   [tags: Iliad]

Analysis Of The Book ' The Iliad '

- ... Compared to the characters that are preferred by the gods, some heroes seem more tragic and readers tend to feel more compassion on them. The typical ones are those who are aware of the actions of gods but also are aware of their puniness in face of the gods. Hector, the prince of Troy, is a good example: He is conscious that it is gods decide everything, including his death. If he is killed, it is done by the gods through the hands of Achaians. He knows that he cannot control his the god 's will as all human can 't so he want to look at his wife and son again before entering the fierce battlefield where he may face his death given by the god....   [tags: Iliad, Trojan War, Achilles, Hector]

However, they seem to weaken the part of women. Female characters in this two books are often portrayed as peripheral--women in Tanakh seldom get blessings except the ones that are related to giving birth and women in The Iliad hardly involve in the war.

Achilles was so fearsome, he drove the entire Trojan army to the safety of the city walls. The only man remaining on the battlefield was Hector himself. After a long chase and some divine intervention, Achilles found the weak spot in Hector’s armor, and mercilessly speared him on the tip of his lance. Hector died in the dirt of his homeland.

The Iliad And Oedipus The King

- Although both The Iliad and Oedipus the King portray humans with very little control of their lives, in The Iliad the gods have some of the control, but are subservient to the power of fate and their biggest role in the story is to be an object of blame. This is contrasted by the view of power in Oedipus the king where the gods are much more involved and help carry out the Fates’ will, despite the human’s wishes, and this difference affects the thematic differences because Homer places more of the blame on humans while Sophocles gives humans less power and therefore less responsibility for their actions....   [tags: Iliad, Greek mythology, Odysseus, Achilles]

Analysis Of Homer 's ' The Iliad '

- In historical times, war was viewed as glorious, especially during the medieval era, as depicted in countless novels and narratives with which fighters were portrayed as heroic and brave. Contrary to this viewpoint, modern civilization sees war as an orgy of destruction that despite sometimes being necessary demolishes entire cultures and puts families into disarray and ruin. Within the Iliad, Homer incorporates these two conflicting viewpoints into a complex and deep attitude towards war. In the historical epic, Homer reveals the devastation that fighting inflicts on soldiers both physically and emotionally, and he depicts the grief and sorrows of the families of soldiers killed during the...   [tags: Trojan War, Iliad, Homer, Achilles]

These similes Homer uses in The Iliad exemplify how glory obtained in battle is nothing compared to the glory and immortality of nature.

During battles, especially when warriors are gaining immense glory, many similes about plants and natural forces appear....   [tags: Trojan War, Iliad, Achilles, Homer]

He claims that this comparison of Achilles to beasts may be to highlight the strength but lack of limitations possessed by the beasts and Achilles, or perhaps the lack of affection and remorse Achilles feels for Hector . The author also believes that through this simile, Achilles is acknowledging and embracing his own death soon to come; thus, the simile, as well as other beast-similes, epitomize the challenges of heroism and the relation between glory and death in Homer’s world.
