Lancelot vs. Achilles
Posted in the Literature Forum
#1 Nov 17, 2012
Lancelot was King Arthur's first knight in the fabled English kingdom of Camelot. Lancelot was valiant and handsome but wayward and controversial. Lancelot was vulnerable to the arrows of fame.
Achilles was a legendary Greek soldier who helped the Greeks sack the army of Troy before the rise of the Roman Empire. Achilles was very brave and strong but had a problem with leadership vanity. Achilles had a weak spot in his overall body.
Both Lancelot and Achilles represent strength idealization, though Lancelot is more romantic and both reflect the cultural marketability of the war-celebratory Hollywood (USA) movie "The 13th Warrior" (1999).
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
