    'The first great book, and the first great book about the suffering and loss of war' GuardianOne of the foremost achievements in Western literature, Homer's Iliad tells the story of the darkest episode in the Trojan War. At its centre is Achilles, the greatest warrior-champion of the Greeks, who refuses 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 - knowing this will ensure his own early death. E. V. Rieu's acclaimed translation of The Iliad was one of the first titles published in Penguin Classics, and now has classic status itself.Originally translated by E. V. RIEU Revised and updated by PETER JONES with D. C. H. RIEU Edited with an Introduction and notes by PETER JONES

    Two major epic poems came from ancient Greece and had the power to shape our culture for centuries. They are both attributed to the blind poet Homer, and are called Iliad and Odyssey. The Iliad tells the epic story of the war of Troy and its ten-year siege, bloody battles and great heroes. The mighty warrior Achilles, whose mother held him by the heel while immerging him in the river Styx to make him invulnerable, his brave companion Patroclus, kings and gods compete alike for the glory of ancient Greece, which is still resonating today. The Iliad and its sequel, the Odyssey, are the oldest extant works of Western literature. They are of tremendous cultural importance, and their magic is still strongly alive.

    Two major epic poems came from ancient Greece and had the power to shape our culture for centuries. They are both attributed to the blind poet Homer, and are called Iliad and Odyssey. The Odyssey is the story of the Greek hero Odysseus, or Ulysses, who began a journey home after the fall of Troy. It will take him ten years of marvelous and terrible encounters before he finally reaches his native city, where everyone assumed he was dead. There will he find his wife Penelope, famously weaving and unweaving a never-ending tapestry while obnoxious suitors are competing for her hand. Once again, Odysseus will have to outsmart his opponents in order to be reunited with his family. The Iliad and the Odyssey are the oldest extant works of Western literature. They are of tremendous cultural importance, and their magic is still strongly alive.

    Versión en prosa de uno de los clásicos absolutos de la literatura universal: la Ilíada de Homero, que narra el rapto de Helena de Troya a manos de Paris y la posterior guerra entre aqueos y troyanos por recuperarla, con la intervención de las diferentes fuerzas de la naturaleza encarnadas por dioses y semidioses. Una lectura capital para todos aquellos aficionados a la Grecia clásica y a la buena literatura.Este audiolibro está narrado en castellano.Homero (ca. siglo VIII a. C.) es el nombre que se le da al aedo, o cantante de epopeyas, a quien tradicionalmente se le ha atribuido la autoría de los principales poemas épicos griegos: la «Ilíada» y la «Odisea». Varias teorías sugieren que Homero se trataba en realidad de un grupo de artistas y poetas, encargados de recordar y transmitir la poesía épica local.

    Des héros légendaires, un siège qui dure dix ans, deux nations qui s'opposent pour l'amour d'une femme, des dieux qui interviennent dans les combats... Ce récit a traversé l'Histoire de l'Occident en inspirant ses rois et ses artistes. Homère y mêle la ruse, la passion et l'héroïsme au destin des hommes et des cités, dont chacun d'entre nous pourra s'inspirer pour sa propre vie.Incontournable figure de la littérature européenne, Homère est un poète de la Grèce antique ayant vécu au VIIIème siècle avant notre ère. Son existence n'est pas certaine, mais on lui attribue toutefois la paternité de l'Iliade et l'Odyssée, deux épopées qui inspirèrent bien des écrivains de l'Antiquité à nos jours et sont considérées comme des œuvres fondamentales pour l'étude de la littérature européenne.

Yet they themselvesIt is who through defiant deedsBring sorrow on them-far more sorrowThan fate would have them bear.'Attributed to the blind Greek poet, Homer, The Odyssey is an epic tale about cunning and strength of mind. It takes its starting point ten years after the fall of the city of Troy and follows its Greek warrior hero Odysseus as he tries to journey to his home of Ithaca in northwest Greece after the Greek victory over the Trojans.On his travels, Odysseus comes across surreal islands and foreign lands where he is in turn challenged and supported by those that he meets on his travels as he attempts to find his way back home in order to vanquish those who threaten his estate. In turn, his son Telemachus has to grow up quickly as he attempts to find his father and protect his mother from her suitors.Dealing with the universal themes of temptation and courage, the epic journey that Odysseus undertakes is as meaningful today as it was almost 3,000 years ago when the story was composed.
