Title:
Achilles at Work
Authors:
Van Nortwick, Thomas
Abstract:
This article examines the passages in the epic poem "Eliad" in relation to the acts of Achilles. Achilles' speech of triumph to a dead enemy was seen as a common event in the poem. In the scene where Achilles killed Hector, Hector's unburied corpse represents the boundary between life and death. Such acts becomes a vehicle for the poem's meditation on the nature of human life. Also, Hector's death is one link in a chain of interrelated deaths.
