Why I Loathe Heroes Achilles, Agamemnon, Paris and Aeneas

Dec. 25, 2020

Ah, the 4 men I loathe most in the Iliad. Obviously, we need to acknowledge just how important these men were in Ancient Greece and how they defined an era of heroism, but ... seriously? In today's podcast I'll be briefly chatting about each of these 4 men and explicitly stating why they've irked my soul since the first time I read the incredible homeric epic. Most importantly, how every time I read additional legends surrounding the character I simply hated them more. Important to the greek society? Of course. Monumental in literature? Without a doubt. Men you actually want to be mates with? Oh hell no.
