She will be the man here” (519). This quote explains Kreon’s irritation on Antigone. The very moment Antigone buries her be loving brother’s body Kreon wants to take action with killing her because she disobeyed his law also Antigone’s sister, Ismene, because Kreon believes she was part of it too. Kreon believes if he does not kill Antigone he will no longer be one of the best rulers that people will look up too. This quote is important because it explains how Kreon begins to commit hubris.
He had decided to kill Agamemnon but Athena came to him, sent by Hera, and told him to get his anger under control. With that he left in anger and stayed by his ships drowning in sorrow. Here was the fearsome warrior brought to his knees by the loss of a woman, a prize, a piece of property, taken from him by another. He did not fight in the war for a time due to his anger and humiliation but when his best friend Patroclus was slain by Hector he was driven by revenge and rejoined the fight. Hector was considered the warrior-champion for the Trojans, who had persuaded the Trojan warriors to leave Troy and the safety it provided while Achilles was not taking part in the battle.
Malouf emphasises the significance family has on characters and illustrates this through the pain and grief of Achilles. He loses his humanity as he destroys Hector’s body. Priam also suffers loss and grief in the death of his son Hector. This leads Priam to have a vision, an epiphany, of a way to get back Hector’s body. When he and Achilles meet, he uses humanity to persuade Achilles by asking him “Think Achilles.
This lack of self-centeredness is observed through the actions of Hector throughout the entire epic and his compassion for others is prominent in his notion of Greek justice. When Hector firsts steps into the plot of the Iliad, we witness his passion to fight and protect his city. In fact, Hector calls out his brother for not fighting. If Paris had not taken Helen as his prize, then this war may have never occurred. In book three, after Paris’ responds to Hector’s criticisms, Paris offers to prove himself in a fight with Menelaus in order to settle the war.
His virtue is compassion because he loved his parent too much so he ran away from them. He didn’t want to kill his father and marry his mother but little did he know he was adopted so him running a away cause his down fall because he ended up killing his actual father and marrying his mother and having kids with her. If Aristotle’s definition could be expanded to where virtue was included then “Oedipus” would be considered a tragedy. If you put virtue into there then the hero wouldn’t have to have a tragic flaw he could have a virtue which is like compassion or sadness because a flaw is like pride or something along those lines. If virtue was included then Finding Nemo would fit his criteria.

<br> It all began when Agamemnon stole away Briseis, Achillesâ€™ woman. To ease the <br>anger Achilles had for Agamemnon, Thetis asked Zeus to provide honor for her son, <br>Achilles.

Losing the contest causes Hera to despise the Trojans. A second interaction with a mortal is in the midst of a fight between Achilles, and Agamemnon when Hera comes down to send Athena to stop Achilles from killing Agamemnon. Since Hera hates the Trojans and rather than watch Agamemnon be killed by Achilles she decides to intervene and offer Achilles gifts to calm him down. In The Iliad Homer finds great use of similes. Homer uses these similes to help the ordinary people of Ancient Greece better understand the characters and events that take place in The Iliad.
Throughout the course of the play we see how he changes from ‘Valour’s minion’ to his death and a ‘Butcher’. He was not given the chance to repent like Faustus was yet he was easily influenced by his wife showing his lack of willpower. We feel more respect for Macbeth as his death was more dignified with him fighting to the last. ‘Why should I play the roman fool and die on mine own sword?’ this contextual reference is showing how he will not commit suicide as it was customary for the roman generals to do so in the face of defeat. His wives death was an omen of his ultimate death as she was always there on his rise to power and without her he is not as powerful as he thinks he is.
