my young man

I am reading the Iliad to Junhong.
He is, as am I, appalled by the violence in it.
"This is a terrible story!" he says, wanting me to stop. "But it's so INTRIGUING", he says, wanting me to continue.
He thinks Paris is an asshole.
He likes that Achilles (for now) is on strike.
He is worried about Hector.

I'm afraid to tell him that it doesn't end well for any of them.
