Hephaestus was ignorant of the infidelity because Aphrodite would bathe in the sea and become a virgin again. Aphrodite fell in love with Ares, Hephaestus’s brother.

Major as well as minor aspects are evidently removed or altered, and can be seen when comparing the poem to the film. Though the Iliad and Troy share differences, both works are fuelled by jealousy, greed, and pride. When comparing the Iliad to Troy, one of the most influential aspects of the poem is absent in the movie, the gods.

Lord of the Flies by William Golding is a story of civilization that quickly turns into savagery. The defects of human nature are displayed through a storyline of adolescent boys stranded on an island, fighting for their humanity and praying for rescue. This intense story has been adapted into movies over time, and Harry Hook created a version in 1990.

He was ashamed of himself, he would always remain loyal, just like to Aphrodite, he didn't even dare to look at this radiant goddess.
