reading this thread you can see Spengler making broad strokes in order to differenciate classical western culture with modern western culture, he may be onto something with his description but nonetheless you can see the biased nationalism that blinded him, the fact that the faustian man can still identify values and virtues of ancient greek and rome and embraced them tells you that it isn´t as foreign (culture, ideas, society, sports, military) as Spengler wanted you to think it is

I'm on a quest to reading anything I can, related to the greek hero achilles
I already finished the illiad and the epic cycle fragments
I'm currently on the post homerica, after I'm done I'll be reading:
the odyssey
the achilleis
the achilleid
the bibliotheca
the aeneid
the metamorphoses of ovid
the metamorphoses of antoninus liberalis
hyginus' fabulae
and philostratus heroica
i will also read the orphic hymns after I'm done because I find orpheus interesting

μῆνιν ἄειδε θεὰ Πηληϊάδεω Ἀχιλῆος

οὐλομένην, ἣ μυρί᾽ Ἀχαιοῖς ἄλγε᾽ ἔθηkε,

πολλὰς δ᾽ ἰφθίμους ψυχὰς Ἄϊδι προΐαψεν

ἡρώων, αὐτοὺς δὲ ἑλώρια τεῦχε kύνεσσιν

οἰωνοῖσί τε πᾶσι, Διὸς δ᾽ ἐτελείετο βουλή,

ἐξ οὗ δὴ τὰ πρῶτα διαστήτην ἐρίσαντε

Ἀτρεΐδης τε ἄναξ ἀνδρῶν kαὶ δῖος Ἀχιλλεύς.
