Charles Dickens once wrote “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us.” Troy and Greece both cities thrived. They were filled with commerce, filled with a variety of people but most of all they were friends. Until of course a young man by the name of Paris fell in love with the most beautiful woman, Helen. Love most people would describe it as a beautiful yet treacherous. Give your heart to the wrong person and it can leave you in a million pieces but to the right one your heart will grow until it feels like it bursting. I can’t say that I know what Paris and Helen felt but what I can say is because of their love many died. You might wonder why I say “their love for each other” when the book World Mythology by Donna Rosenberg says that Paris was her abductor. I say that because Menelaus, brother of a king could not let it be known that his wife had ran away with a someone because it would make him appear weak and unable to keep order or control his household. Although I would love to keep talking about the poetical love in this story written by Homer this analysis will focus more on the war and some of its dedicated and decorated soldiers.
We’ve all heard the saying pride…
