Primo capolavoro della letteratura occidentale, scritto probabilmente intorno all'VIII secolo a.c., l'Iliade è, insieme con l'Odissea, uno dei pilastri di tutta la cultura occidentale. Nel poema si narrano i 51 giorni della guerra di Troia, dall'ira di Achille ai funerali di Ettore, densi di battaglie ed imprese nelle quali si intrecciano continuamente i destini di dèi ed eroi. Nei 24 libri che compongono il poema vengono descritti tutti i perché della guerra, oltre a sentimenti grandiosi ed eterni quali l'orgoglio, l'amicizia, l'ira. L'audiolibro propone una traduzione fluida e scorrevole dell'opera nella sua versione integrale, in una interpretazione ad alta voce misurata ed altamente evocativa.Traduzione e lettura ad alta voce di Claudio Carini

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 H | 2/14/2014

    " I studied this at college for my classics AS and absolutely loved it- the prose, the characters are all fantastic not to mention the story. I think there is so much in this epic that can be explored and enjoyed and more people should read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alice Sather | 2/7/2014

    " Not always easy to read, but important to read if one is going to have a rounded education in lit across the many years and cultures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny Tran | 1/11/2014

    " This book was full of violence. I learned alot about the war and the greek's culture through this book. I would read this again:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Garrett Dunnington | 12/26/2013

    " These correspond so well with one another (The Odyssey) that they can be read in any order. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Margie | 12/22/2013

    " sooooo long I think there is an entire chapter about a shield "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kolan | 12/19/2013

    " Believe I was 12 or 13 when read this -at the time I LOVED greek and roman myths! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicholas Adcock | 11/12/2013

    " Pretty cool book once you get used to style of writing and story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luke | 10/23/2013

    " Despite the childhood memories of this being agony to read, it's a fantastic tale, full of blood guts and gore. Classic for a reason, as some wonderful person once said... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chelsea Nicole | 10/13/2013

    " I liked The Odyssey more...just sayin' "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsi Lupton | 10/7/2013

    " Love this timeless story, but as far as this type of dense writing goes, can't say that I actually read this for pleasure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 8/24/2013

    " Loved it. Not at all what I expected. So much more emotion and drama (not to mention terrible gore) that I would have ever thought. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Conor | 8/12/2013

    " Terrible. And enough of "rosy fingered dawn" already. In fairness, it was probably quite good back in 300 BC, when there was nothing else to do but listen to stories of people eating food ALL THE TIME, but by today's standards, there are better things to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bianca | 4/28/2013

    " Fagles translation or nothing at all. I'm not usually picky about this sort of thing, but it really matters and makes a difference in this case. Besides that... it's the Iliad. Classic for a reason. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Owen | 4/15/2013

    " Great plot, very descriptive fighting scenes, however there were many slowly flowing areas of the book that really weren't that interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela Belair | 4/12/2013

    " I read this first in college...LOVED it. I often go back and reread sections just for fun. It's such a good adventure. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carol Hardesty | 3/13/2013

    " Not as good as "The Odyssey". It's all blood and guts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 9/7/2012

    " Really enjoyed this, a great way of getting your head around the story and all its characters. This could be used as a great learning resource. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A. Rosaria | 8/12/2012

    " What more to say a classic, still great after ages, centuries, millenia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph Costello | 6/20/2012

    " I think I should like funeral games when I die. That would be great. You are all invited. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cameron | 5/18/2012

    " A great foundation on which to build Western Literature. The first word is WRATH. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Max Dierich | 4/8/2012

    " Lots orf blood, normal for the time it wqas written "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cedar | 12/13/2011

    " I swear if Greeks and the Trojans did not spend so much time scavenging for valuables on the dead and if they took up modern day burial practices the Trojan war would have lasted a year. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Pennellatore | 10/4/2011

    " I'm a Latin and mythology nerd. Love it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gregory Hunt | 7/20/2011

    " I would have enjoyed it more if Homer was telling it to me around a campfire. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angela | 4/2/2011

    " I don't know if it's just me but this book ripped me a new asshole. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tonya | 2/14/2011

    " I should consider this kind of read, because I could never get through The Odyssey, but I liked The Iliad. - read in college "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/13/2011

    " A wonderful translation and part of the Great Authors series. Odysseus is a sympathetic character, at least until he gets home to Penelope. Achilles seems like too much of a whiner to be a modern-day hero. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew | 12/15/2010

    " So many family shout-outs, and the action's really slow. Then again, it is a classic... Who really gives a shit if it actually happened, can't we enjoy the story for what it is? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evieccurtis | 12/2/2010

    " Classics I will read over and over again! Homer was brilliant! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanya | 10/26/2010

    " This falls under the category of books I may never finish.... I humble except defeat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wyatt | 10/21/2010

    " Pretty good epic novel. The language was kind of confusing, but you get over it. Overall, very well written and and a great story. Definately a classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan | 9/24/2010

    " This is one of my favorite books. Out of the two stories in the book I liked the Iliad best. I found it a great read and an easy read though you will need a prior understanding of Greek and Roman gods to follow the stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina | 7/22/2010

    " I like the Odyssey better than the Illiad. Odysseus is one of the most interesting characters in the history of literature. "

About the Author
Author Homer

Although recognized as one of the greatest ancient Greek poets, the life and figure of Homer remains shrouded in mystery. Credited with the authorship of the epic poems Iliad and Odyssey, Homer, if he existed, is believed to have lived during the ninth century BC, and has been identified variously as a Babylonian, an Ithacan, or an Ionian. Regardless of his citizenship, Homer’s poems and speeches played a key role in shaping Greek culture, and Homeric studies remains one of the oldest continuous areas of scholarship, reaching from antiquity through to modern times.
