In this fifth episode, "Professor and Lowell Television Lecturer at Harvard University" I. A.

The action concentrates on the battlefield, running roughly from Achilles's prayer as he lends his armor to Patroclus, to Hector's killing of Patroclus with Achilles's repentance as its the aftermath. Summary and select metadata for this record was submitted by John Marx & Mark Cooper. Based on the 1958 book The Wrath of Achilles, The Iliad of Homer by I.A. Richards.
