The Poem of Force

While we're on the subject of movies, Victor Davis Hanson pens a review of Wolfgang Peterson's new movie The Iliad - er Troy - on his blog. I read The Iliad, but only once and long ago in my college daze. Victor Davis Hanson, as you probably already know, is a military historian and a Classics professor. He is far more competent than I to comment.

(I do suggest bookmarking his blog while you're over there.)

UPDATE: It looks like Honora Howell Chapman was the one who wrote that piece, not VDH. But it's on his site, and no less worth reading. She, too, is a classicist at California State University-Fresno, where Hanson teaches.
