RE: The ILIAD, by Homer
First of all, I like greek mythology.
I like the fact the greeks made their gods in their on image,
And didn't bother with impossible ideals.
I like the little play amongst the gods in the world of men.
What seems to be a side-show for them leads to great loss of life and destroyed cities and dynasties.
I like how two heroes were presented; Hector, Hero for the Trojans, and Achilles,Hero for the invading greeks (Iliad is about the Trojan War).
One, much more powerful than the other, yet, both idolized by there their respective people.
You will wonder how Achilles, a demi-god, son of Zeus, can be so powerful and spoilt at the same time.

I have to write more on iLiad later, it has been a long time since I read it

RE: The ILIAD, by Homer
I read that book a long time ago a friend lent it to me. I also read something called the "Oddesey" I don't know if I'm spelling it right. It's about odesius and how he thought he could survive without the gods, He was punished by posedion the god of the seas: and he was doomed to sail the seas eternally, never being able to see his wife or kingdom.

Anyway, the book is about all his adventures the interesting people, godesses, cyclopses, withches and wizards he encountered. It's a really amazing book if you're into greek myth.
