Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the foremost achievements in Western literature, Homer's Iliad tells the story of the darkest episode of the Trojan War. At its center is Achilles, the greatest warrior-champion of the Greeks, and his conflict with his leader Agamemnon. Interwoven in the tragic sequence of events are powerfully moving descriptions of the ebb and flow of battle, the besieged city of Ilium, the feud between the gods, and the fate of mortals.

About the Author

Homer is believed to have lived c. 754-700 b.c. in Ionia and to be the author of the earliest works of Western literature.

E. V. Rieu was a celebrated translator from Latin and Greek, and editor of Penguin Classics from 1944-1964. His son, D. C. H. Rieu has revised his work.\

Peter Jones is former lecturer in classics at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.
