The lliad

After reading the assigned chapters of The Iliad —Books I, VI, XVIII, XXII, and XXIV (1, 6, 18, 22, 24):
Begin your main response this week by focusing on any one book (chapter) of the Iliad that we read. Why did you choose the book you did? What did you like about it? Explain.
Then, select one character from that book/chapter. In your response, address the following points:

What is the characters most important deed? Explain why.
What is the characters main motivation? Is this motivation honorable? Why or why not?
What is your overall impression of the character? Why does the character resonate with you? 

Finally, conclude your response by briefly but meaningfully addressing one of the prompts below:

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? 

Task 1: Submit your main response to the discussion forum prompt on or before the required date/time by clicking the ‘**REPLY HERE**’ link. Your main response should be substantive, addressing each required part of the forum prompt. Your main response should be at least 150 words.
