Timeless Classics: The Iliad (Illustrated)
Perhaps the most famous epic poem ever written, Homers The Iliad has been read for nearly 3,000 years, making it also one of the oldest written works in the Western world. Although the story covers only a few weeks in the final year of the Trojan War, the poem has made characters like Paris, Helen, Achilles, Hector, and Ajax instantly recognizable, and the Trojan Horse made people caution of Greeks bearing gifts. Homers poetry influenced Virgil and every other great poet ever since, and it literally put Troy on the map, motivating Heinrich Schliemann to search for and ultimately find the city of Troy in the 19th century. This edition of Homers The Iliad includes a table of contents and is illustrated.
