dc.description.abstract This paper attempts to redefine the role of the "hero" in ancient Western epic poetry, focusing specifically on the Iliad of Homer and the Irish epic the Tain Bo Cuailgne, by focusing on the maintenance of a hierarchy of loyalties. Similarly, this paper demonstrates the need to expand the traditional conception of the epic seductress. Ultimately, the paper concludes with a brief cross-cultural comparison of ancient Greece and Ireland based on information extracted by employing the revised definitions suggested in this paper.
