|Reviews for Off To Troy|

Yes, interesting that the en go with anger in their hearts. But it is not clear if their anger is caused by the abduction of Helen, or if it is just an anger that men generally feel, with Troy being the object of their wrath.
The "ten thousand men die in disgrace" is an interesting line that is hard to decipher.
It is obviously the view of the poet that the war was wrong. But there is a feeling that the men themselves do not recognise this.

Decided to check on how things are going with you on the net, and boy was I suprised. You've written so much stuff!
As for this poem, I think the idea of sailing to troy with anger in their hearts is an interesting one. Especially since the last couple of lines make you wonder whether this anger is directed at the enemy (Troy) or Helen, who they have been sent to retrieve.
Anyway, fantastic stuff!

Oh, yes, I think you got hold of the feelings so well...
