This tragic series of events is interwoven with powerfully moving descriptions of the ebb and flow of battle, of the domestic world inside Troy's besieged city of Ilium, and of the conflicts between the gods on Olympus as they argue over the fate of mortals. The Iliad is a work of extraordinary pathos and profundity that concerns itself with issues as fundamental as the meaning of life and death. Even the heroic ethic itself - with its emphasis on pride, honor, prowess in battle, and submission to the inexorable will of the gods - is not left unquestioned. This version of The Iliad is the translation by Alexander Pope.

The beauty of Pope's Iliad made audible.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Iliad?
It is not about memorable moments. It is about being swept along on the tide of Pope's words.

An excellent audio book for an epic poem.
An excellent narration for an epic poem, translated by Alexander Pope, whose control over verse is unparalleled.
