ⓘsⓐbεℓℓⓐ I loved the book and the movie (even if it was incorrect)! I think this tale is one of my favorites, it tells of believe, power of persuasion, love, war and its evilness.
If you were in this amazing myth, who's side would you be on? The Trojans or the rest of Greece? If you were a man, would you have done the same thing that Paris had?

is the movie Troy have to do with the trojan war? cz i waz gona watch it with my bros and sis but i fell asleep b4 it evn started. lol


message 6: by Cortnie (new)

Cortnie | 103 comments Yes, it does. the entire thing is based off of the book, The Iliad.


message 7: by Amy (new)

Amy (Runawaymarbles) I read both the Iliad and the Odyssey. "The sun was rising from the fair sea into the firmament of heaven, shining on mortals and immortals alike," Oddyssey, book 4, I think.

The Iliad is annyoing in that you need to learn all the characters, and their fathers.

yep yep we r desi :D cant wait


message 10: by Amy (new)

Amy (Runawaymarbles) Odyssey rocks. Iliad doesn't rock as much.


Waterfall *Daughter of Northridge Earthquake* (falls) wow. this is ironic. I was just about to read the book the trojan war today.


message 12: by Amy (new)

Amy (Runawaymarbles) that's the ILIAD


ⓘsⓐbεℓℓⓐ But the movie is really incorrect. For 1 thing, Helen didn't like Paris at all, never the less love. 2nd, Achilles let his cousin go battle in his armor.


message 14: by Amy (new)

Amy (Runawaymarbles) Helen ran off with Paris. She did too like him... Aphrodite made her fall in love with him, because Paris decided Aphrodite was the prettiest goddess.


Waterfall *Daughter of Northridge Earthquake* (falls) no no. I have this book actually titled the Trojan War.


ⓘsⓐbεℓℓⓐ Oh, there are many translations



ⓘsⓐbεℓℓⓐ And Aphrodite let him have the most beautiful woman other than herself (gag) becuase he gave the golden apple to her.


message 18: by Amy (new)

Amy (Runawaymarbles) that's what I said. So she (Helen) was in love with Paris.


ⓘsⓐbεℓℓⓐ She didn't care when he went and faught, she just let him go. Plus he's a coward!


message 20: by Amy (new)

Amy (Runawaymarbles) SHe let him fight because the CITY was under attack, and Paris was the big cheese.


ⓘsⓐbεℓℓⓐ I still say she didn't like him a lot



ⓘsⓐbεℓℓⓐ Do you think Paris is a coward?
