Our English I Pre-AP recently finished presenting on various books from The Iliad. The focus of our presentations has two ideas: 1) the major characters from the book and their affect on the plot of the individual book 2) the view of heroes. In analyzing the characters we research the purpose and meaning of the names of the various characters and their role in the plot. In understanding the meaning of heroes the groups expressed their view of a here and compared this to their interpretation of the ancient Greek’s view of a hero, based on the groups selected book within The Iliad.
