ACHILLES VERSUS HEKTOR

HEKTOR VERSUS ACHILLES!

Angered by the death of Patroklos, Achilles returned to the battlefield to fight Hektor. Overwhelmed by fear, Hektor ran away. Achilles pursued him, with the two ending up at a spring where the Trojan women used to wash their clothes. The place gives a glimpse of what Trojan life was like before the war, the time ‘before the sons of the Achaean came to Troy.’ The imagery adds to the tragedy of Troy’s fated destruction.
