HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

'Clanless, lawless, homeless is he who is in love with civil war, that brutal ferocious thing.'

The epic poem The Iliad begins nine years after the beginning of the Trojan War and describes the great warrior Achilles and the battles and events that take place as he quarrels with the King Agamemnon. Attributed to Homer, The Iliad, along with The Odyssey, is still revered today as the oldest and finest example of Western Literature.

“Best translation yet”

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
