On the platform stage, bare but for a pair of immense gates, stalks the inevitable tiger of war. Hector returns from battle as a peacemaker and convinces Ulysses and the populace of the insanity of war. Together they agree that the Trojan War shall not take place. But the poets need a war for their elegies and dirges; the king, because it is custom; the lawyer, because of his honor; and others, for various mean reasons. And so, in spite of all logic, the war erupts.
