Greek epic poem by Homer; widely considered the first work in Western literature. Tells the story of a small period of time during the Trojan War, focusing mainly on the character Achilles.
The original Greek version was spoken in rhythm to a lyre by a traveling musician-writer known as a rhapsode, not unlike a modern rapper. In fact, the term rapper comes from the word rhapsode.
There are many English translations, many of which are in the form of prose rather than poetry.
It is a very slow-moving story, regardless of translation, mostly because half of it is spent shouting out the names of hundreds of different Greeks and Trojans who died during the war, due to the fact that it would have been recited for Greek aristocrats who believed they had ancestry from that period.

The condition that some people have where their fatal flaw is hubris. Hubris is having too much pride to the point of thinking that they do not need help and can do anything on their own without outside help, even when the situation is a snipe with a shotgun
The condition comes from Achilles in the Trojan War where the gods told him he could not kill all of the Trojans without help but he charged on anyways, which led to his death. The pride inside of him made him charge into battle so he could keep his pride instead of lose his pride, and then his honor.
It's probably best to let the person with Achilles Complex to find out their own way that they will need help with the task at hand. If you insist on helping before they ask, you will miss one thing and another will happen. You will miss them actually asking for help (they just rejected all of their pride), and jumping in before they ask will just anger them. All you can do is wait for their call for help. Then, if you are not a douche
, you will help. If you are a douche, then you should kill yourself before the person with Achilles Complex does.
Me: Hey check out the hot blondes over by the pool.
Sam: You will just be shot down. Look around.
Me: I'm doing it anyways.
Sam: You really do have the Achilles Complex. Want my help?
Me: Hell no. If I wanted it, I would have asked.
Sam: Ok. Good luck.
