The first of Homer's great epic poems, the Iliad portrays the final days of the Trojan war. The Iliad has stood the test of time and is still one of (it not the) best depictions of ancient warfare. It is an essential precursor to the infamous journey of Odysseus.
Translated and Narrated by Stanley Lombardo. Introduction by Susan Sarandon.
"In the front of all poetry stands the poetry of [ancient Greece], and in its foremost rank stand the epics of Homer." (Andrew Lang, Homer and the Epic)
"Lombardo's Iliad both sings to 21st century ears and holds true to Homer's original vision; the blind bard would be proud." (Publishers Weekly)
