People often think that the Iliad is about the Trojan War.
This is a common misconception.
The Iliad is about the wrath of Achilles and, in between, four other things.
In fact, the Iliad is limited to a few days by the end of the war, which lasted 10 long years.
Before all that, there came, as an ally of the Trojans, the amazon Penthesilea, who was the daughter of Ares.
Amazon and daughter of the god of war, she caused, along with her contingent of other amazons, considerable carnage among the Greeks.
Until Achilles arrived, saw her, and defeated her: in five minutes he had already burst her chest with a spear.
As the Amazon collapsed, her helmet fell off. Achilles, seeing her beautiful face, fell in love with her.
A little late, of course.
Even for Achilles, the most formidable of heroes, love was where he least expected it. Unfortunately, he realized it too late.
Not everything has to be so tragic in life. A lot of people are afraid, or wary, or lazy, or whatever, or X, of Latin.
But, just as it happened to me with lentils with chorizo, often those who try it discover something wonderful and wonder how they could have been living without it.
Don’t let it happen to you like Achilles and it’s too late to discover it!
P. S. The Greek Thersites laughed at the spectacle and Achilles, in turn, burst his head with a punch.
