A collector's edition of Homer's The Iliad, the epic poem that chronicles Achilles' fury and the fall of Troy. This edition is based on Alexander Pope's famous poetry translation (1688-1744).
Set during the ten-year siege of Troy by a coalition of Mycenaean Greek kingdoms, The Iliad describes the conflicts and events that take place in the final weeks of the war, when a dispute between King Agamemnon, the ruler of the Greeks, and Achilles, their best warrior, reaches a boiling point.
