Homer's best work!

"The Iliad", Homer's first epic that is continued in "The Odyssey", isn't as fun or involving as its successor, in my opinion, but it's still one of the first stories ever put to paper in the Western world and, like "The Odyssey", lays the foundations for stories which would come later. A good tale of war, intrigue, backstabbing, and violence, "The Iliad" also does well showing the cold hearts of the Grecian gods and goddesses. Do read this, especially the translation by Robert Fagles, to discover one of the most important works in Western literature history.

The World's Greatest War Novel...
Translated by W.H.D. Rouse in "plain English" translation. It is nearest contemporary English equivalent to the epic that Homer's audience heard at their banquets.
