Outline Homer's view of leadership in the iliad??
Answers 1Add Yours
Homer uses all of his heroes to show various qualities of leadership. All of the Greek chieftans lead a group of warriors, yet each is different. Achilles is proud to the point of hubris; his anger at Agamemnon causes the death of Patroclus and his behavior with the body of Hector is repulsive to the gods and the Trojans. Agamemnon believes he can do whatever he wants with no one to challenge him. Odysseus believes that his leadership is made strong through his cunning and trickery. Menelaus' leadership is focused on his hurt pride at his wife being in Troy instead of in Sparta with him.
