How the Western world views or portrays characters like Ulysses

In your paper, discuss how the Greeks and Trojans are portrayed in The Iliad vs. Inferno. Note that Dante and Virgil (ancient Roman poet and Dante’s guide) are sympathetic to the Trojans, whereas Homer championed Achilles, Ulysses (Odysseus), and the Greeks. What impact, if any, has Inferno had on how the Western world views or portrays characters like Ulysses or Virgil (In other words, has Dante’s view of the Greeks changed the way people view them now)?

Achilles, Helen and Paris of Troy- Canto V (5), Circle 2

Ulysses and Diomedes, Greek heroes from the Trojan War- Canto XXVI (26), the eighth bolgia of the eighth circle. Canto XXVI:

See what their sins are, why they are punished for them, and also how they are punished. Do Dante and also Virgil feel sorry for them or do they think they deserve the punishments? Look at what Dante and Virgil say and do when they see these historical figures (their reactions, their discussions to one another, and when (if) they talk to the Greeks).

In case you need some modern references again (this is the same info that was in the Discussion Board):

“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” “As above, so below.”- famous lines in Inferno that have been repeatedly used in movies. Here is an example:
