And which of the gods was it that set them on to quarrel? Para recuperar o seu corpo beija as mãos do seu assassino. Go back now, lest she should find out. You are always settling matters in secret behind my back, and have never yet told me, if you could help it, one word of your intentions. But now I know that the best way to keep insomnia at bay is to get out of bed, hitch up my chariot, tie the corpse of my mortal enemy to the back, and drive around for a few hours, dragging him, until I cheer up and can go back to sleep. I have now read The Iliad for the first time since my college days. Iron inside your chest, that heart of yours.

Agamemnon protests, saying he prefers the girl to his wife, but gives in for the good of all.

You shun this as you do death itself. Weeping, Achilles prays to his mother Thetis, a sea goddess, to help him get revenge on Agamemnon.

Therefore I say, and swear it with a great oath- nay, by this my sceptre which shalt sprout neither leaf nor shoot, nor bud anew from the day on which it left its parent stem upon the mountains- for the axe stripped it of leaf and bark, and now the sons of the Achaeans bear it as judges and guardians of the decrees of heaven- so surely and solemnly do I swear that hereafter they shall look fondly for Achilles and shall not find him.
