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.
