I love the Illiad more than the Odyssey because for me it is a blood and guts tale of battles physical and emotional. It is no accident that in my Greco Roman series I use scrap steel from heavy industry in the vicinity of my home in Milwaukee. Thick plate scrap from coal shovel machines. Plasma cut steel. Heavy stuff. I see something heroic and eternal in this battle of raw steel.
