Book 1 (Questions)
What struck me most about Book 1 was that Achilles would have killed Agamemnon had Athena not intervened (1.195-205), and later Nestor telling Achilles not to defy the king as he was his superior and that Zeus had granted his kingship. (1.276-281)
Was Nestor’s view of kingship granted by Zeus the prevailing one?
How rigid was the social order?
