Simone Weil (1909-1943) was a defining figure of the twentieth century; a philosopher, Christian, resistance fighter, anarchist, feminist, Labour activist and teacher. She was described by T.S.

War and the Iliad by Simone Weil( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and French and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Simone Weil's "The Iliad, or the Poem of Force" is one of her most celebrated works - an analysis of Homer's epic that presents a nightmare vision of combat as a machine in which all humanity is lost. First published on the eve of war in 1939, the essay has often been read as a pacifist manifesto. Rachel Bespaloff was a French contemporary of Weil's whose work similarly explored the complex relations between literature, religion, and philosophy. She composed her own distinctive discussion of the Iliad in the midst of World War II
