  • 1.1:

    Achilles’ wrath, to Greece the direful spring
    Of woes unnumber’d, heavenly goddess, sing!
    That wrath which hurl’d to Pluto’s gloomy reign
    The souls of mighty chiefs untimely slain;
    Whose limbs unburied on the naked shore,
    Devouring dogs and hungry vultures tore.
    Since great Achilles and Atrides strove,
    Such was the sovereign doom, and such the will of Jove!
