The Iliad and the Odyssey are the earliest extant works of Greek literature, and they are also the best examples of what are called Epic Poems. The word Iliad means Poem about Ilium. Ilium, or Troy, was a city of what was later called Mysia, in the northwest of Asia Minor, and was situated three miles south of the Hellespont. The poem describes only an episode in the ten years siege of Troy by the Greeks.

About the Author

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.
