Excellent essay quotes

Last Friday the two oldest kids, 14 and 12, turned in essays about the characters in the Iliad for their Ancient Literature course.  Today their teacher, Megan Krejci, highlighted bits from their essays in this blog post:

Christopher, 14:

“If not for being angry, selfish, and spiteful, Achilles could be like Hector.”

Sarah, 12:

“Akhilleus has some similarities with Gilgamesh; he is part god and part human, has a best friend who dies, and goes to his mother when he has a problem.”
