Dear Prof. L-T The paper seeks to show how heroes were viewed in the cultural setting of the tale of Iliad. More specifically, I chose the character of Hector to show how the heroes were supposed to behave and how they were regarded by society. Writing about heroes in the culture of Iliad, I chose the character of Hector because he had several options to choose from and each choice represents how much of a hero he wanted to become and the lengths he was prepared to go through. Hector had several opportunities where he could have escaped from his situation and lost the label of hero, but he chose to remain and die gloriously and obtain the status of a hero in society
