The Iliad and the Odyssey (Paperback)
It is a must-have for every literature enthusiast who wishes to maintain a
library of their own-the combination of two Homeric epics. The two very
important pillars of Greek culture narrate the events during the end of the
Trojan War and Ulysses's journey back home following the 10-year-long
war. Nearly 3,000 years after they were composed, the Iliad and the Odyssey
continue to be two of the most celebrated and widely read stories ever told.
Homer's poems provided a set model of heroism, nobility and good life
to which all Greeks subscribed. He provided a common set of values that
preserved the Greeks' ideas about themselves.
