David Malouf’s, ‘Ransom’ is set in the historical context of the Trojan War – a time where men win honour and glory by fighting and performing valiant acts on the battlefield. Although the novel is focussed on the broad theme of war and the actions of several heroes on the battlefield, it also explores the notion of physical and moral courage.
