• I don’t know if this counts as a reading note, but now I really want to watch Troy
  • Athena is really a jerk in Hector’s death scene. I wonder what would have happened without her
  • I wand Andromache to fight for vengeance for Hector. Even if it’s just shooting arrows from the walls of the city, I want her to take her husband’s place leading the soliders
  • I absolutely hate that it ends with Hector’s burial. That’s not much of an ending at all! I think it would be much better to end with the Trojan Horse, or with Aeneas escaping
