Description

The Iliad is an epic Greek poem written by Homer, and is considered one of the oldest pieces of western literature. The story takes place during the last weeks of the ten-year Trojan War, with a focus on the quarrels between King Agamemnon and the legendary warrior Achilles. In the tale's most famous scene, the Greeks give the Trojans a large wooden horse as a peace offer. Filled with soldiers, the Trojan horse allows the Greeks to infiltrate the high walls of their enemy. Many Scholars believe the Iliad was originally composed in an oral tradition, intended to be heard, not read, making this epic classic a must have for audiobook listeners. This edition follows the poetic translation of Alexander Pope.
