The Many Lives of Ajax is an expository book redefining the role and presence of the archetypal Greek warrior, Ajax, in western history and culture. Because of shallow or bogus representations of Ajax in Hollywood films, and the exploitation of his classical entitlement ""Ajax"" as a household cleaning products, Ajax is familiar in cinema lore and popular culture as either a peripheral or non-essential character in the classics, or as a Madison Avenue jingle. Consequentially, The Many Lives of Ajax will reveal ""Ajax"" as the predominant voice in the whole of The Iliad as well as a defining voice in myriad sources across the classical continuum. The presence of ""Ajax"" in the western cultural experience in spatial, temporal and literal sources will be revealed in this first-ever ""expose"" on Ajax in art, history and culture. Through guided discussion and a continuum of historically contiguous images, The Many Lives of Ajax will return Ajax, Bulwark of the Achaeans, to his rightful place in the canon.
