Description
 

Homer's Iliad (the fountainhead of European literature) recounts just a few days in the tenth year of the war of Troy. Later writers added other episodes - onward to the end of the siege and its aftermath, back many generations to its roots - until it became the collective dream of the Western world.

This novel for the first time weaves the great story mass into a unified whole. The famous characters teem (Helen, Hector, Paris, Achilles, Agamemnon, Ajax, Priam, Cassandra . . .) but the narrator is a surprising one, a female captive.

Hardbound, 6 x 9 in., 410 pages; color painting on jacket, sketches, maps, genealogical tables, 39-page appendix on the Greek names.

1999. ISBN 0-934546-38-X.
