The ancient Greek poet Homer established the gold standard for heroic quests and sweeping journeys with his pair of classic epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey. Crowded with characters, both human and non-human, and bursting with action, the epic tales detail the fabled Trojan War and the adventures of Odysseus as he struggles to return home. Homer’s epics have inspired countless books and works of art throughout their long history.
The Iliad (4 Cassettes)by Homer, Roger Rees
Written by the poet Homer in the eighth century B.C., The Iliad has fascinated and moved people for more than two thousand years. Homer meant for The Iliad to be heard, and told by a bard who had command of the vocal resources and dramatic power to move his audience. Listen to Roger Rees tell you how the Greeks and the Trojans battled over the fate of Helen of Troy. Hear about the blind arrogance of Agamemnon. Weep as the Trojan hero, Hector, is slain in epic battle. Witness the anger of Achilles.
