Achilles, the greatest of Greek heroes, is angered by Agamemnon and decides to withdraw from the battle. What is the reason for his wrath? Is there anything that will make him change his mind and return to the battlefield? Both armies have suffered tremendous losses, and the long war seems to be heading towards a stalemate. The Greeks, however, have an ingenious stratagem that may well determine the outcome of the war. Brave warriors, noble heroes, women of divine beauty and envious gods moved by human passions come alive in this wonderful retelling of the most famous epic war story of all time.

I've always been a fan of Martin Hammond's prose translation of The Iliad, which brings the violence, humour, detail, characters and world to life so effectively. Until I read this new verse translation,... More

“Buy this book”

I love this book: the translation is clear and powerful - it propels you straight into the carnage of bronze age warfare and politics, where you feel the heat and the dust, hear the crash of armour and see the blood... More
