In the Iliad, Nagy says that Homer ‘elevates Achilles to the highest realms of humanity, of humanism.’ How
does Homer do this? Choose one other character in the Iliad in the books that you’ve been assigned that
you feel also reflects the ‘humanism’ that Nagy identifies in Achilles. Be specific and cite episodes from
Johnston’s translation (e.g. Book 1:125-136) that support your argument. [N.B. quotations do not count
towards 300-word requirement].
