Inspired by Joel Christensen’s CHS Open House discussion on ‘Eris and Epos: Composition, Competition and the ‘Domestication’ of Strife’ which concentrated on Homeric and Hesiodic examples, I thought it might be interesting to look at other texts and to compare uses of the word eris for this month’s Core Vocab discussion. The definition from Professor Nagy is ‘strife, conflict’.
I have included examples from Aeschylus and Euripides, relating to Helen as the cause of the strife between the Achaeans and Trojans. There are also passages that illustrate verbal conflict.
