"Again a woman was the reasons, Chryseis, daughter of Applo's priest, whome the Greeks had carried off and given to Agamemnon." (pg. 183)
Someone help me!!!
We've got you now, Chryesis!
How dare you take my daughter!!! Apollo, kill them!
"Her father came to beg for her release, but Agamemnon would not let her go. Then the priest prayed to the mighty god he served and Phoebes Apollo heard him." (pg. 183)
I know a way. You have to guarantee my safety first.
"Then the prophet Calchas stood up and said he knew why the god was angry, but that he was afraid to speak unless Achilles would guarantee his safety." (pg. 183)
We need to appease Apollo.
"When Calchas declared that Chryseis must be given back to her father, he had all the chiefs behind him and Agamemnon, greatly angered, was obliged to agree. " (pg. 184)
Fine! Take her. -Agamemnon
You must give her back! -Calchas
"silver-footed Thetis the seas nymph, came to him. She was as angry as he. She told him to have nothing more to do with the Greeks, and with that she went up to heaven and asked Zeus to give success to the Trojans." (pg. 184)
Achillies, you shall have nothing to do with the Greeks otherwise I'll tell Zeus to favor the Trojans! -Thetis
Sorry mom, I can't. -Achilles
"The plan Zeus made was simple. He knew that the Greeks without Achilles were inferior to the Trojans, and he sent a lying dream to Agamemnon promising him victory if he attacked." (pg.184)
If you attack the Greeks I promise you victory! -Zeus
