Iliad Book 4

Agamemnon

Death Mask of Agamemnon


The book opens on Olympus, where the gods are discussing the truce between the Greeks and the Trojans. Zeus winds up Hera and Athene by suggesting that peace should be made: having had his joke, he lets Athene go down to organise the breaking of the truce. She persuades Pandaros to fire an arrow at Agamemnon and the game is back on. Agamemnon goes among the troops practising his people skills and annoying everybody. Then the fighting kicks off with a hail of missiles and similes.
