Queer as Fact

Achilles and Patroclus in Modern Media

August 15, 2020

Today's Queer as Fiction episode is a follow-up to our episode from earlier this season talking about the mythological figures, Achilles and Patroclus. 

This time, we're here to talk about modern depictions of the pairing. Join us as we compare and contrast Wolfgang Petersen's 2004 film Troy, Madeline Miller's 2011 novel The Song of Achilles, and the 2018 BBC mini-series Troy: Fall of a City. 

Check out our website, where you can find out everything there is to know about Queer as Fact, including source posts for each episode of our current season.
