A Homeric Hero
Please see attached. 4 Topics to choose from. Please use transitional words. What constitutes a Homeric hero? What values and qualities are most prized in the Iliad? Conversely, what is devalued? What “subversive, yet progressive” roles do women play in the Greek texts assigned this term? How do the Greek texts assigned this semester define “justice” in view of what it means to be “human.” Write your narrative on how these works differ on their views of “justice” and what it means to be “human.” Imagine that you are an ancient Greek who has been transported from fifth century BC Athens to AD 2020 Houston. You are able to communicate to your fellow Athenians via the internet. Write a letter to your compatriots commenting on what you think is the Houstonian view of justice and what it means to be human. Make sure to include enough references to the works that you read this term so that your letter will make sense to a fifth century BC Athenian.
