The Iliad

Серия: "Signet Classics"

Humans and gods wrestling with towering emotions. Men lighting to the death amid devastation and destruction. Perhaps the Western world's first and best storyteller. Homer draws the reader in with bated breath. His masterful tale contains some of the most famous episodes in all of literature: the curse on the prophet Cassandra; the siege of Troy; the battle between Hector and Achilles; the fate of Helen, whose face launched a thousand ships. To this day, the heroism and adventure of THE ILIAD have remained unmatched in song and story. In his "plain English" translation, W H. D. Rouse makes a point to keep the language as colloquial as Homer's original was, never pedantic, high-flown, or cliched. In fact, it is the nearest contemporary English equivalent to the epic Homer's audience heard at their banquets.
