As you were assigned Books 22 in Powellâ€™s translation of the Iliad this discussion segment will include specific analysis of specific readings in Book 22 which covers the â€˜Death of Hektorâ€™. Each specific reading contains examples of the most stirring scenes in the entire poem.
Although I expect you read the entire Book 22 this question addresses Lines 156-351. FIRST: What roles do the gods (Zeus, Apollo, and Athena) play in the fate of both Achilles and Hektor?
SECOND: How has the story led us to this fateful confrontation between Hektor and Achilles? You can see how these two questions are linked.
IN YOUR RESPONSE: Use specific examples in your response from the text. Consider such elements as Zeus and death of mortals; the hubris of Hektor striping the armor from Patroclus; the deceptive lie told by Athena to force Hector to face Achilles; the cold iron of Achilles heart; and donâ€™t forget to pay special attention to the Lines: 240-260 â€œno trusted oaths between lions and menâ€ â€¦ and any other factors you want to address
* before the Dr grade it she will ask a question or two about the discussion, so I will need a short answer or two from the writer. that means the job will be in two parts.
