As it happens, Housman was wrong on that point, and Arnold right; and this should give us pause over the larger question. In fact the spring of scholarship cannot and has not run on uncontaminated by the scum and garbage of criticism. So in 1981 we can expect more and more scholars, for good or ill, to consider Homer as a poet rather than a corpus vile of lays or motifs or formulae. Now it would not be surprising if, as a serious poet, Homer reflected on the nature and purpose of his work; and such reflections have indeed left their mark upon it.

This gives some solace to Achilles, whose shade strides off 'rejoicing because I told him that his son had excelled’ (540). In this passage the life and destiny of Achilles— the dominant subject of the I l i a d —is reworked. No amount of honour can compensate for the emptiness of death; yet an early death was what Achilles chose, to avenge Patroclus and redeem his own name. At the same time, the honour which his son and image wins brings him joy. The tension between the horror of death and the demand for glory is the tragedy of the whole I l i a d ’, it finds expression in Achilles’ mouth here, as it does more painfully and bitterly in I l i a d 9.
