Quotes About Achilles Rage In The Iliad

Everywhere in Homers saga of the rage of Achilles and the battles before Troy we are made conscious at one and the same time of wars ugly brutality and what Yeats called its "terrible beauty." The Iliad accepts violence as a permanent factor in human life and accepts it without sentimentality, for it is just as sentimental to pretend that war does not have its monstrous ugliness as it is to deny that it has its own strange and fatal beauty, a power, which can call out in men resources of endurance, courage and self-sacrifice that peacetime, to our sorrow and loss, can rarely command.
— Bernard Knox —
