Familial Relationship of Homer


Discuss the relationship between parents and children in the Iliad. Choose at least two parent-child relationships from the books (chapters) you have read and compare them to the final scene in which Priam goes to Achilles to ransom the body of his son, Hector (Book 24).

Examples are: Khryses and his daughter, Khryseis; Achilles and Thetis; Hephaestus with Hera and Zeus on Mt. Olympus; Hector and his mother, Hecuba; Hector and his father, Priam; Hector and his son, Astyanax.

For this paper, I would like you to use one outside source. I want you to use the Iliad, of course, but you may also draw upon analysis or other research related to your paper. You may use the internet or books, articles, etc., but you must properly cite them. If not properly cited, I will deduct points.

This paper will be 5-6 pages in length (1000-1250 words). It must have proper MLA style formatting and include a bibliography (Works Cited) page. Remember to check your word count.

You must use the text of the Iliad and NOT a retelling. For this paper, you will automatically lose points if you do not use the actual Iliad.
