Reasonpotent believe what he’d do at sea wnear the fish crowd – why, the man could occupy a shrewd, diving for oysters! Plunging aggravateboard, equal in choppy, heaving seas, reasonpotent as he dives to gound from his war-car now.Even these Trojans tolerate their tumblers – what a leap! ” b. He catched him by that spearhead aggravate the chariot-rail, hoisted, dragged the Trojan out as an angler perched on a ocean cast ledge drags some fish from the sea, ome exalted lay-hands-on, after a opportunity direction and glittering bronze catch.. . his hole gaping environing the glittering aim and flipped him down countenance pristine, heavy as he subvert his duration met blown afar. The roads are common to each other accordingly Patroclus insults his enemies in twain of the roads. In the pristine road he insults Cebriones, the driver of Hector and in the prevent one he insults Thestor. Patroclus is disobeying Achilles’ instructions accordingly he is aggravateconfident and too ambitious that he believes that he allure get the city and annihilate all of the Trojans. The ocean concept of these two roads is profanation.Patroclus slays integralone he sees and commendations his enemies as supplemental. Patroclus loses his anthropological feelings and beseem a slay. Homer tells the anecdote by comparing the massacre to fishing, and this is a tragicomic homogeneousity. 7. 5/10 c. d.

I am off to the ends of the plentiful, numerous spnear to scrutinize Ocean, fountainhead of the gods, and Mother Tethys who nourished me in their halls and reared me polite-behaved-behaved. ” In road c tnear is a god that symbolically senior unarranged all anthropologicals and the other gods. He is irrelative from all. The road glorifies this god. Since the leading god is Zeus, the mentioned god near is he.In observation, Hera goes to Aphrodite and asks aid from her in direct to entrap Zeus in the road d. Tnear is a confliction near. Zeus can be surrendered accordingly of some covets cognate to anthropological skin, equal though he is the leading one. The gods in Iliad tolerate some features passion intrigues and double-dealings which are cognate to anthropologicalkind. In other suffrage, the gods are not perfect. However, tnear is a symbolical destruction betwixt the gods and anthropologicals. When Hera asks aid from Aphrodite, although they are in irrelative sides of the war, she aids Hera.The gods are generally happier than the destructives, and they do not tolerate rancor resisting each other as plenteous as the destructives. 8/10 e. f.

The gods shortnesss the atonements of anthropologicals. In observation, in the prevent road we see the grand authority of the gods that they are potent to annihilate perfectly the anthropologicalkind. They tolerate such a grand authority that equal they are scared of the inundation they sent. However, the gods are regretful accordingly they apprehend-again that they had a chance and they shortness the anthropologicalkind. The gods are imdestructive and the anthropologicalskin should be imdestructive as polite-behaved-behaved. Thus, they surrender persistentity to Uta-napishti and his succormate to fix the entity of the anthropologicalkind. /10 g. h.

Come, let us celebrate pure of each other’s spears, equal tnear in the confused of encounter . . . But let’s occupation armor. The men must apprehend our claim: we are sworn companions from our fathers’ days cultivate now! ” h. “My comrades – contending Danaans, aides of Ares – no pillage now!Don’t lag astern, don’t toss yourself at plunder reasonpotent to drag the biggest lot end to your ship. Now’s the opportunity for annihilateing! Later, at unoccupied-time, flay the corpses up and down the natural. ” In the pristine road Diomedes and Glaucus do not contention when they apprehend-againd that their grandfathers are companions and these two men are sworn companions for hanker opportunity. Tnear is no profanation betwixt them accordingly they i-elation their fathers and surrender further moment to companionship than spirit and the covet of wining the war. They occupation their armors and do not solicitude environing the spirit manifestation although the materials of the armors are irrelative.By doing this they shortness to parade that their flatten of spirit is selfsame. On the other workman, Nestor surrenders moment to profanation in the prevent road. Nestor and Agamemnon’s pristine pre-eminence is not spirit as polite-behaved-behaved, and they do not solicitude environing the devolution of the city. They singly focused on profanation and annihilateing integral Trojan that they see. When Menelaus believes environing preamble indemnify, Agamemnon urges him to annihilate singly. The pre-eminent flatten of profanation can be seen near; thus-far, Diomedes and Glaucus are believeing in precisely inconsistent way. Their priorities are irrelative although they are in the selfselfselfselfidentical war. 8. /10 i. j.

Mother tells me, he imdestructive goddess Thetis after a opportunity her glistening feet, that two fates tolerate me on to the day of release.

If I tour end to the fatherland I passion, my vainglory, my brightness dies . . . gentleman, but the duration that’s left to me allure be hanker, the clap of release allure not follow on me instantly. The roads are common accordingly the ocean concept of twain roads is contending for spirit. However, Achilles’ and Hector’s reasons of contending and their priorities are irrelative. Achilles contentions singly for his brightness and spirit.He does not aid his comrades reasonpotent accordingly Agamemnon dishonored him. Achilles’ pristine pre-eminence is his spirit and brightness for which he has achievemented so callous. However, Hector contentions not singly for his spirit but to-boot for the mob of Troy. Hector solicitudes environing what mob believes environing him. Twain Hector and Achilles encounter a fix environing contending or not accordingly twain of them apprehend that if they contention they allure die shortly but tolerate brightness and spirit at the selfselfselfselfidentical opportunity. Hector considers the disgrace he allure countenance, if he does not contention. On the other workman, he apprehends that if he contentions and annihilates Achilles or equal he dies, he allure get spirit.Thus, he chooses to contention.
