Abstract:

Ransom (2009) is a novel by Australian author David Malouf that retells the story of Homer’s Iliad from books 22 to 24. This paper is an endeavor to analyze the role and significance of ‘Moirai’ in Malouf’s novel Ransom. Ancient Greeks worshipped and believed in the great powers of God and his authority over human beings and people respect and endure God’s rules. In Greek mythology, the white-robed incarnations of men’s destiny, the ‘Moirai’, controlled the destiny of mortals from birth till their death. Worshipping, pleasing and obeying the Gods was their onus and any deviance in this regard was considered menacing to their lives. All human beings, whether prince or paupers, including monarchs and great warriors, irrespective of their power, position and identity are subjected to fate. There was always a confusion between free-will and ‘Morai’, and Ransom as a story is an artefact of that.
