- What are your views on the Trojan War, as presented by Homer? Does the war seem to be fought for a just cause? Are we meant to take these events as seriously and solemnly as Homer and his characters seem to?
- Sometimes, when comparing works of literature, we see things that we didn’t originally notice when reading the stories individually. With this in mind, think back to week 1 and the Epic of Gilgamesh. Where do you see similarities in character, theme, plot, or style between that earlier epic and the Iliad? How do you think Gilgamesh influenced Homer’s work? What are any important differences you see between the two stories?
