Read BOOK 6 Hector & Andromache of The Iliad by Homer. The text begins: [1] So was the dread strife of the Trojans and Achaeans left to itself, and oft to this side and to that surged the battle over the plain, as they aimed one at the other their bronze-tipped spears between the Simoïs and the streams of Xanthus.

[5] Aias, son of Telamon, bulwark of the Achaeans was first to break a. Andromache is a foil to the other three major characters of the play and underlines the immature and selfish nature of their passions.

Her own love for her husband and son Andromache book not only unselfish, but is founded on a firm moral basis.

Andromache, meanwhile, pleads unsuccessfully with Hermione to save her son. Then she turns to Pyrrhus, who Andromache book her hand in marriage in return for his protection. Andromache, unable to come to a decision, goes to consult the spirit of her husband at his tomb.

Act IV. Andromache has decided to yield to Pyrrhus, but with a tragic private. In Book 6, Andromache is shown in a rather untraditional place for a woman.

She is standing atop the walls of the city, watching what is happening below. With her is a lady-in-waiting carrying her. The end of Book VI is the famous scene between Hector and Andromache and their infant son, Astyanax.

Most commentators consider this scene to be the most moving in the Iliad. It is a portrait of the warrior at home, war forgotten as he watches his son play and talks with his wife.

Andromache (nor the one I read previously, Alcestis) really covers any longer length of time - but rather occurs over one single day. Perhaps one of the reasons for it being "short" is the fact that it is not a modern day novel - and not quite under the same cultural setting as say, Shakespear, whose plays are a lot more elaborate/5.

Andromache explains that she was the slave of Pyrrhus (the evil Greek who killed Priam), until another Greek killed him, after which Helenus inherited some of his territory.

She asks after Ascanius, and Helenus leads everyone to the city, which resembles a smaller Troy. In Book 17 of the "Iliad", Homer mentions Podes, a brother of Andromache. Podes fought with the Trojans.

Menelaus killed him. In Book 6 of the "Iliad", Andromache is depicted as saying that her father and his seven sons were killed by Achilles in Cilician Thebe during the Trojan War.

(Achilles would also later kill Andromache’s husband, Hector.). Andromache’s lament (B lines ) is particularly powerful because Homer effectively uses literary techniques here that bring out audience empathy. In the Iliad, Andromache’s lament is a poignant, intense passage that serves as a characterization of Andromache, providing the reader with a further understanding of Hektor, Trojan.
