More About This Book

Overview

Presented in this book are three of the greatest literary works of the Ancient World: 'The Iliad' and 'The Odyssey' by Homer, and 'The Aeneid' by Virgil.
'The Iliad' tells the tale of the ten year siege of Troy by the Greeks, the exploits of King Agamemnon and the legendary Achilles, and the infamous wooden horse invented by Odysseus.
In 'The Odyssey' the cunning Odysseus is cursed by Poseidon to wander the seas for ten years before he is able to return home from Troy. Odysseus recounts his fabled adventures and his battles at home in Ithaca to reclaim his loyal wife.
Written by Virgil many centuries after Homer's works, "The Aeneid" tells the story from the other side - that of the Trojans. Aeneas is a great Trojan warrior, forced to flee the sack of Troy with his aged father on his back. His adventures leading the beleaguered Trojans take him first to Carthage and the tragic Queen Dido, before he continues on to Italy to become the legendary founder of Rome.
These three masterpieces of epic poetry have stood the test of centuries, and have become an integral part of Western literature and culture.
This book is beautifully presented with color illustrations and a detailed map of the Homeric world, and an interactive table of contents for ease of navigation.
