Hi Fred, Funny you should quote this scene as I was watching TROY with the boys (13-15 year olds) and they were asking me did that really happen? Why would Achilles do such a thing? No Respect or did he want to make a point?

"Is the opening chapter more dramatically effective if I have the protagonist driving over a paper bag of puppies? Or should that scene wait until later?" He was dead serious. Achilles takes the corpse of Hector for a spin around the city walls. Is that gratitious, or does it set up Priam's late night visit in a stronger light?
