Overview

Robert Graves’s dynamic retelling of Homer’s powerful epic poem

This edition of Homer ‘s Iliad , retold with authority and grace by the incomparable Robert Graves, takes a revered classic back to its roots as popular entertainment. War is raging between the Greeks and the Trojans. Achilles, the great warrior champion of the Greek army, is angrily sulking in his tent and refusing to fight, after an argument with his leader, Agamemnon. But when the Trojan warrior Hector kills Achilles’ beloved friend Patroclus, Achilles plunges back into battle to seek his bloody revenge-even though it will bring about his own doom.
