In his novel Eric, Terry Pratchett refers to Faust and the Iliad but in contrast to what a reader expects to find, he shows his own, untoward vision of the mythical stories. This playing with literary convention is intentional and it aims to create a comical effect. It is, however, not only a way of achieving a humorous effect. Pratchett also distances himself from the oral structure and origin of the epics y creating ostentatiously literal environments for his characters. He shows the Homeric epics through the prism of later reception and the twentieth-century education system. It is not only the reader who recognises the conventional motives, but also the characters ‘inside’ the novel.
