The Iliadis the first and the greatest literary achievement of Greek civilization the cornerstone of Western culture andan epic poem without rival in world literature. The story centers on the critical events in the last year of the Trojan War, which lead to Achilleus s killing of Hektor and the fall of Troy. But Homer's theme is not simply war or heroism. With compassion and humanity, he presents a universal and tragic view of the world: human life lived under the shadow of suffering and death set against a vast and largely unpitying divine background.


This edition presents Penguin Classics founder E. V. Rieu's lively translation of Homer s great epic.
