Summary
"From beginning to end of the Iliad, Agamemnon and Achilleus are locked in a high-stakes struggle for dominance in which they attempt to impose competing definitions of rightful leadership, using competing definitions of loss incurred and the nature of the compensation owed. A typology of scenes involving apoina or "ransom" and poine or "revenge" is the basis of Donna Wilson's detailed anthropology of compensation in Homer, which she locates in the wider context of agonistic exchange."--BOOK JACKET
