Homer's 'Iliad' / Glorification Of Violence
[ send me this essay ]
8 pages in length. Homer's Iliad is a classic example of how violence has been glorified - while not necessarily justifiably so - since the beginning of civilization. There is an inherent desire for men to thrust their outer manhood into their enemy's faces in order to assert their inner strength. The writer discusses how Homer utilizes gender roles and divine/human relations to emphasize compassion for war victims, depicts modern society's ambivalent role and documents the warrior/hero mentality as it justifies warfare and brutality. No additional sources cited.
