ENGL 111 Odysseus Forum Post 2Book 11, When Odysseus is having his conversation with Achilles in Hades.“Do not tell me anything glorious about death, Odysseus! Oh God, I would rather be a man’sslave on earth, some dirt-poor tenant farmer who barely has anything to keep alive than rule overthe breathless dead in Hades. Tell me about my son, Odysseus, did he become a champion? Tellme about my father, Peleus, is he still representing my Myrmidons well? Or is he despised inHellas and in Pthia because he has become old? For I no longer am alive. I am no longer theman I was, the comrade-in-arms to help my father, as once 1 helped our armies, killing the bestfighters that Troy had. I would kill to once again be at my father’s house for one brief day.”I particularly found this passage very interesting.
