via Guest Post: Achilles’ Shield and Schiller’s Philosophy of Aesthetics, by Corry Shores

A poet treats his stuff in common when he performs unimportant acts and passes over important ones. He treats it big when he connects it to the big one. Homer knew how to treat the shield of Achilles in a very witty manner, although the making of a shield is something very mean in substance.

(Early Christian Writings)
