Shilo gets a new gig, and we offend a whole county! But back in the Iliad, Patroclus is dead, and the Greeks and Trojans fight over his body. Why is a whole book concerned with Patroclus’ body? And why do we care about the armor and the horses of Achilles? Brian, Shilo and Jeff talk about how this book contributes to the suspense of the story, and about the meaning of Patroclus’ embodiment. Is Patroclus his body, or is he different from his body? Are human bodies different from those of the gods? We explore the strange image of the stretched bullhide, and whether Patroclus’ body is a valuable commodity.
