Read Online: “The Iliad, or the Poem of Force” by Simone Weil

For CLR 13: RESISTANCE, we typeset Simone Weil’s incredible 1939 essay “The Iliad, or the Poem of Force”. But when it came to printing the issue was already pretty full, and more expensive to print than was ideal, so the “Poem of Force” slipped out. (Though the last minute change is why you will still find Simone Weil’s author notes in the printed issue). Instead, we are making our typeset version of the essay freely available here. Enjoy!
