Instructions (There are two parts):
1. Pick one character from The Iliad and write a summary of the war from their point of view, use first person (like a personal journal, for example). No need to use MLA citations in this first part, as it should all be your own fictional writing.
You may choose one of the following characters to write from:
Menelaus
Priam
Paris
Achilles
Helen
Briseis
Agamemnon
Hector
Patroclus
Ajax
Nestor
2. Then, write about how the point of view of the character you chose would be different from other characters. What is it about the character’s personality, perspective, limited view of the happenings of the war, etc., that alter their retelling of the story? You only need to use MLA citations in this section if you choose to quote from the text. Otherwise, it is not necessary.
