As you were assigned Books 22 in Powell’s translation of the Iliad this discussion segment will include specific analysis of specific readings in Book 22 which covers the ‘Death of Hektor’. 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 don’t forget to pay special attention to the Lines: 240-260 “no trusted oaths between lions and men” … and any other factors you want to address
