New introduction and editorial apparatus by Peter Jones

Look at me. I am the son of a great man. A goddess was my mother. Yet death and inexorable destiny are waiting for me

One of the foremost achievements in Western literature, Homers Iliad tells the story of the darkest episode in the Trojan War. At its centre is Achilles, the greatest warrior- champion of the Greeks, and his refusal to fight after being humiliated by his leader Agamemnon. But when the Trojan Hector kills Achilles close friend Patroclus, he storms back into battle to take revenge although knowing this will ensure his own early death. Interwoven with this tragic sequence of events are powerfully moving descriptions of the ebb and flow of battle, of the domestic world inside Troys besieged city of Ilium, and of the conflicts between the Gods on Olympus as they argue over the fate of mortals.

E.V. Rieus acclaimed translation of Homers Iliad was one of the first titles published in Penguin Classics, and now has classic status itself. For this edition, Rieus text has been revised, and a new introduction and notes by Peter Jones complement the original introduction.
