From the depths, sea creatures played around him everywhere, 30 acknowledging their king. The joyful ocean parted.
I think Poseidon is often down played. The world is composed of approx. 70% of water which would be controlled by Poseidon. This is a huge amount of potential power! I am having difficulty thinking of a deity other than Artemis that echoes this same influence with the world around them (specifically with animals). I have found my self being interested with specific characters within each chapter over the actual writing techniques of Homer. This could be because of the actual story being extremely intriguing.
I am also interested in how these scenes would actually be performed. Would these lines be narrated? Would the theatrical performance be happening in the background? Would the Iliad be performed orally rather than as a play?
