“For of all creatures that breathe and move on earth none is more to be pitied than a man.”
An ancient Greek poem, Homer's The Iliad is one of the greatest epics of Western literature.
The story depicts the critical events during the last few weeks of the final year of the Trojan War as Homer provides glimpses of the past events that led to the catastrophic war, and insights into the future through the prophecies of Achilles' looming death and the fall of Troy.
Interwoven with the moving descriptions of the ebb and flow of the battle, The Iliad presents an appalling view of the world and human life living under the umbrage of death and suffering.
