I've never seen a story about Astyanax before and for once, I'm very glad I found this one. This is so full of emotion and anguish. I love how you put Odysseus in the story and made him feel remorse (because he himself is a father torn away from his infant child) for what he was doing; murdering a baby. Great job! I love it! :D

I liked your poem. I'm glad to see Odysseus was sorry for what he felt compelled to do.

Sad but very well-written.

I always hated the way Astyanax died. I mean he was only a baby, but the Greeks hurled him over the highest point of Troy like he was a sack of potaoes. I really feel sorry for Andromache who lost her husband and child.

You know, I really like this poem... I really hate what happens to Astyanax... It's funny, but I first heard the name from an old Nintendo game, and when I read the story of Troy, I got all excited and nostalgic when I saw the name again... but what a short life... Love the poem though. Kudos

That was incredibly sad. I've always thought that was the worst part of the Trojan war (besides Hector's death) and I think you portayed it well.

How sad. Poor little Astyanax.

I'm not sure what to make of this. It is quite powerful, and the simple prose makes it even more so. Very powerful piece.

not so much a poem... more like a story in verse... okay taht didn't make much sense, but i like it, especially the last stanza. "I am a son of a Troy. I am the son of Hector" i don't know. those simple words seem so powerful. "i WAS Astyanax" somehow seals the fate of him. i like odysseus's words, and how u tied him in the last line. not bad, not bad at all.
