Question: What kinds of logical inferences about the heroic Greek society depicted by Homer can we draw from the depiction of Thersites and his exchange with Odysseus in Iliad 2.246-324? More specifically, what do we infer about the prescriptions and prohibitions of the martial code, an honor system extolled by heroes, but not by the common soldier? Finally, what kinds of differences between the values of epic society and our own does this passage illuminate that influence reader response?
