Help with Questions to The Iliad: Books 22-24


  • How, specifically, does the Iliad comment on human suffering?  Can you identify different episodes or passages that reflect on suffering in ways that are similar or different?
  • What are the main differences between Achilles and Hector in Book 22?
  • What is the purpose of Homer’s digression on Trojan women doing their laundry in the middle of Achilles’ pursuit of Hector?
  • Do you feel that the extensive aid the gods give to Achilles when he kills Hector diminishes his victory in any way?
