The Iliad And The Holy Bible

- People have pondered the idea of predetermined events for many years. Some people believe in the fatalistic point of view, where they think that the future is beyond their control (Taylor, 56), whereas other people believe in free will. The Iliad, written by Homer and translated by Stanley Lombardo, and the Aeneid, written by Vergil and translated by Sarah Ruden, are two epic poems that present the idea of fate. The Holy Bible, King James Version, is a set of ancient texts that also present fate....   [tags: Aeneid, Aeneas, Troy, Iliad]

Ovid's Metamorphoses: An Example of Chaos Versus Order

- Ovid's Metamorphoses: An Example of Chaos Versus Order Ovid's Metamorphoses is an example of chaos versus order. I think that is what makes it hard to follow. There is just so much chaos moving from one book to another with barely a transition. I think what the anti-epic is trying to show is that everyone has flaws. In the beginning of time a flood changed the earth. The earth was made pure and two by two it began to prosper and grow again. This was chaos followed by order. The poem continues with Cupid being angry with Apollo and shooting him with his arrow....   [tags: Ovid Metamorphoses Essays]

The history of philosophy contains concepts and movements that must be broken down into smaller fragments, or unit ideas.
