  • 1.1:

    SING, goddess, the anger of Peleus’ son Achilleus
    and its devastation, which put pains thousandfold upon the
    hurled in their multitudes to the house of Hades strong souls
    of heroes, but gave their bodies to be the delicate feasting
    of dogs, of all birds, and the will of Zeus was accomplished
    since that time when first there stood in division of conflict
    Atreus’ son the lord of men and brilliant Achilleus.
      What god was it then set them together in bitter collision?
