This book offers a clear and stimulating introduction to Homer's Iliad, the greatest poem of Western culture. It discusses central aspects of the work (including the tradition of oral poetry, the style and structure of the epic, and its depiction of the gods, heroism, war, and gender roles) and guides the reader in understanding the skill and profundity of Homer's achievement. This introduction is ideal for undergraduates and students in the upper forms of schools, but it requires no knowledge of ancient Greek and is intended for all readers interested in Homer.

About the Author:

William Allan is the McConnell Laing Fellow and Tutor in Greek and Latin Languages and Literature at University College, Oxford, UK, and Lecturer at the Faculty of Classics, University of Oxford, UK. He is the author of a volume on Euripides' Medea in BCP's Companions to Greek and Roman Tragedy series.

Review:

The book discusses most of the questions that regularly arise when teaching the Iliad, supporting clear and engaging interpretative statements with relevant examples. The unpretentious and direct style makes the book welcoming to students, and even advanced readers will find insights that are new to them. ... The book as a whole contains many beautifully stated insights, where a fundamental and correct point is made in language that is very clear. * Classical Review *
