Achilles, Hector, Agamemnon, Priam: the Iliad is the story of great heroes, of Helen and the women of Troy, and of the two 'traded' slaves, Chryseis and Briseis. Interwoven in the story of Achilles' battle rage are those who fight because they must: Homer's great tragedy counts the cost of war, and the price of remembrance.
