General Description

This “prequel” to Homer’s Odyssey is the tale of the face that launched a thousand ships, the hubris that destroyed a warrior, and the honor that revealed a true hero. Full of battle strategies, clever conversations, and intervention from the Greek gods, the Iliad draws the reader into ancient Troy and makes him consider questions of courage and leadership that still concern us today.
