The Question and Answer section for Iliad is a great resource to ask questions, find answers, and discuss the novel.
Zeus sends the god Hermes to take King Priam into the Greek camp so that he (Priam) can convince Achilles to take pity on a bereft father and return Hector's body.
I think that the values in the Iliad are shared by many values today except in a very different context. All the words that you use provide the basis of human nature. You can find evidence of this in popular culture and even in your own life....
Book number please?
