In this last week I have taken the time to read Aishilos's "Prometheus" and comparing it to the Iliad I found it much more enjoyable to read. Couple of months ago I have read "Works and days" by Hesiod and am currently about half way trough Herodotus's "Histories" and I find them as well a better read than the Iliad. I am not saying that First work of Western literature is bad, it is a good damn read but I still find certain 6th century writers much comfier.

My favourite passages from the Iliad are from 139-176 when Hector and Pelid strike, and the scene of gambling before is also very well described, but when compared to for example, Prometheus's monologue when asked by Io and Choir about Zeus's downfall, to me it makes such a nice visual scene that I almost feel the breeze of Caucasus mountains.

Am I retarded?
