Paris Sightings

  • The Iliad by Homer 801BC - 601BC

    Homeboy paints Paris as kind of a selfish, egotistical coward in this definitive account of the Trojan War.

  • The Metamorphoses by Ovid 101 - 200

    Paris returns home to Troy with a hot new wife and a massive army of angry Greeks in this classic series of poems. (We're guessing Ma and Pa weren't so happy to see him.)

  • The Fall of Troy by Quintus Smyrnaeus 401BC - 302BC

    In this ancient poem, Paris takes out Achilles with an arrow, but later gets killed by an arrow himself. Oh, the irony.

    Paris briefly flashes his perfect smile in this "problem" play by Shakespeare set during the Trojan War.

    Orlando. Bloom. Is. Paris. Witness the glory...
