Minor point - there are lots of questions, but generally, Homer is credited with creating the Iliad, but not writing it. He is supposed to have created (and memorized) it, reciting it as a storyteller (I think).

Or, as Mark Twain may have said, the Iliad was not written by Homer, but by someone else by the same name. (Or was that Hamlet and Shakespeare?)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Achilles:
Homer's Iliad is the most famous narrative of Achilles' deeds in the Trojan War. Achilles' wrath (μῆνις Ἀχιλλέως, mênis Achilléōs) is the central theme of the poem.

Achilles was most guilty of wrath? Judging from the movie, I thought it was pride.
