    The epic song of Ilion (an old name for Troy), "The""Iliad" recreates a few dramatic weeks near the end of the fabled Trojan War, ending with the funeral of Hector, defender of the doomed city. Through its majestic verses stride the fabled heroes Priam, Hector, Paris, and Aeneas for Troy; Achilles, Ajax, Menelaus, Agamemnon, Patroclus, and Odysseus for the Greeks; and the beautiful Helen, over whom the longstanding war has been waged. Never far from the center of the story are the quarreling gods: Zeus, Poseidon, Apollo, Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite.

    "The Iliad" is the oldest Greek poem and perhaps the best-known epic in Western literature, and has inspired countless works of art throughout its long history. An assemblage of stories and legends shaped into a compelling single narrative, "The Iliad" was probably recited orally by bards for generations before being written down in the eighth century B.C. A beloved fixture of early Greek culture, the poem found eager new audiences when it was translated into many languages during the Renaissance. Its themes of honor, power, status, heroism, and the whims of the gods have ensured its enduring popularity and immeasurable cultural influence.Bruce M. King studied at the University of Chicago, and has taught classics and humanities at Columbia University, Reed College, and the University of Chicago. Recently a Fellow at the Center for Hellenic Studies, King focuses on archaic and classical Greek literature and philosophy. He is currently a Blegen Research Fellow at Vassar College.

    Reviews - What do our customers think?
    Long, depressing, but has shining moments  Oct 7, 2008
    The Illiad is long (close to 600 pages) and slow reading. Artifacts of the oral tradition, repetative phrases, florid descriptions, laundry lists of participants, and litanies of geneology, restrict the pace of the story. Several of the central characters are immature and selfish, concerned only with getting their own way and personal glory. Between the protracted, adolescent snit of Achilles, and Trojans running back to their mommies when the going gets tough, there are at least as many examples of how NOT to behave as otherwise.

    Odysseus and Patroclos are the best the Greeks have to offer, and they are only in supporting roles. Odysseus is mature, thoughtful, and seeks compromise and cooperation. Needless to say, he is ignored to the Greeks' detriment. Patroclos, Achilles battlefield boyfriend (by the standards of the time they weren't gay; they had wives at home) is an example of selflessness and valor, going into harm's way in Achilles' armor to rally the Greeks when Achilles' wounded vanity and sulking failed the Greeks. And Patroclos is killed in battle for his boyfriend's whiny little temper tantrum.

    This particular translation isn't bad. Not what I'd call a popular rendition, but not as arid as some earlier ones. Over all, I liked it. Still, this is slow going for most folks.
