Anger is a very big subject and plot in the story, both for the mortals and the gods. The immediate anger in book 1 is supposed to set the tone for whats going to happen. Its all about the wrath of Achilles. He doesn’t show up for a lot of the iliad but hes at the beginning so we can remember him throughout. The anger was started because of women. they were from an asian background, had nothing to do with troy, they were simply spoils of war. The Greek army spent 10 years there and didn’t eat fish, so they had to find a way to eat. Most likely they attacked everything around troy while they were there. Some things they need would be food and horses. Their gods are usually made worse for several reasons. It can be to show an example of how not to act and it can also be a reason as to why things are the way they are. The gods are blown out of proportion to show that people themselves are ok, no matter how bad life is, you are quite alright and normal compared to others.
