This paper discusses Homer's Hector of Troy and how Hector is Homer's implicit hero within the "Iliad." The paper suggests that because Homer was an admirer of Aristotle, he created Hector to be the fictional embodiment of Aristotlean rationality and virtues in operation. The paper analyzes the character of Hector in the "Iliad" and illustrates the ways that Hector can be clearly seen as Homer's idea of an Aristotlean hero.
