Agamemnon – furious, his dark heart filled to the brim,
blazing with anger now, his eyes like searing fire.
The Iliad, Book 1, lines 121-122. The words of soothsayer Calchas inflame Agamemnon, who seethes with rage after being blamed by Calchas for angering Apollo by disgracing the god’s priest. Homer uses a simile to compare Agamemnon’s eyes to searing fire.
