Book Review - All Things Shining - By Hubert Dreyfus and Sean Dorrance Kelly - The New York Times
Achilles’ speech in Hades — the first poetry that Plato wanted to expunge from his ideal republic — is one key that suggests Homer’s heroes, like the rest of us, had a great deal of trouble with suffering and evil, those things that make the meaning of life problematic.

They also had trouble with alienation: how else should we understand Odysseus? The charismatic man who can find his way anywhere but is nowhere at home is a prototype of modern ambivalence — down to the love for his wife that coexists with the enjoyment of other erotic attachments too deep to be called flings.

Don Draper is Odysseus.
