Description

Attributed to Homer, ""The Iliad"", along with ""The Odyssey"", is among the oldest literary documents in the Greek language. This epic war story depicts seven key weeks during the battle for Ilium, or Troy, culminating in the decisive battle between Achilles and Hector. More importantly, ""The Iliad"" attempts to define the qualities of the heroic character. Here, in a single volume, students will find some of the leading critical analyses available on this ancient work. Completely updated, and incorporating the best new material available, this ""Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations"" edition is especially suited for those working on complex research papers. The full-length essays are accompanied by additional helpful features, including a chronology, background information on the contributors, and a bibliography.
