At the very end of the Iliade, Priam and Achilles meet: two sworn enemies. Priam crosses the land with a donkey to recover his son, Hector’s, body in Achilles’ tent.
“For a moment, protected by the sleep of an entire army, two beings looked at one another. No longer bound by external laws, by learned hatred. They invent a moment that is only for them, made of admiration and tears. Centuries of conditioned rage surges up in their eyes, and lowers: the species recognizes itself. They are quiet, watching each other, eating, sleeping. Their common insignificance counterbalances the tumult that preceeded it.”
DÉJÀ LA NUIT TOMBAIT ( fragments de l'ILIADE), is based on a translation of the text by Homere by Frédéric Mugler, éditions Babel – Actes Sud, Premiere 2018
