La historia de la guerra de Troya. La anecdota suele regodearse sobre la figura legendaria de Homero, supuesto juglar ciego que iba de pueblo en pueblo cantando sus grandes narraciones epicas. La Iliada, una narracion de la Guerra de Troya, originada en el rapto que hizo Paris de la mujer mas bella del mundo, Helena y La Odisea, la descripcion de las aventuras del sabio Ulises u Odiseo en su vuelta a Itaca, su patria, terminada la guerra de Troya, sus aventuras en el camino y su encuentro con la fidelidad de Penelope, su mujer, que habia resistido todos esos anos el asedio de ambiciosos pretendientes. La verdad parece ser que esos cantos fueron creados a lo largo de varios siglos, con poetas que iban agregando a la historia. Pero sea como fuere, las dos obras son de una fuerza que todavía, despues de 25 siglos asombra, y haya existido Homero o no, quien haya sido el autor de estos dos poemas epicos tiene su puesto asegurado entre los grandes autores de la humanidad.

This timeless poem, more than 2,700 years old, still vividly conveys the horror and heroism of men and gods wrestling with towering emotions and battling amid devastation and destruction as it moves inexorably to its wrenching, tragic conclusion.

    " I read Homer years ago. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Manish | 2/12/2014

    " Since a review cannot be written for a classic, i'll refrain. What made the read interesting was the scheming of the Gods vying with each other to get the upper hand in the fight between the Achaens and the Trojans. If not for them, would any of the characters be 'heroic'? Or are these allegorical references? While the movie TROY was my reference for the epic, I just realized that the movie has nothing to do with the book or vice versa. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bernard Cenney | 2/8/2014

    " A fantastic tale of a true warrior. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amyshaft | 1/31/2014

    " I'm just not into violent action books, but this is top dog. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ephemera | 1/22/2014

    " I originally had some problems with the story itself as well as Lattimore's translation...I understand where Homer himself was coming from, but the copy and paste battle scenes seemed pointless after a while, and so much stuff made no sense. Then Lattimore created phrases such as "lying mightily in his might" and "wine-blue sea" (I prefer "winedark" in such instances, as I've seen it in other translations.) But, then I realised other translations can be pretty terrible. And even more than that...Book 18. Holy crap. That made every problem seem negligible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 1/12/2014

    " I didn't understand half of what went on in this book, it just didn't make sense...After reading the Odyssey, this book was just disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam Scavo | 1/9/2014

    " very interesting book. it helped me stay awake. this had a lot of action and i like books that actually do things and make the book feel better then it was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dena (Books for Kids) | 1/7/2014

    " How can a book that survived 2,700 years deserve anything less than 5 stars? I love history, and this was the ultimate historical drama. The scandals, manipulation, broken promises, and seduction make this book so fascinating. An intricate plot with plenty of strong characters and motives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Meyers | 12/27/2013

    " Not as stimulating as the Odyssey, in my opinion, but still a great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dustin Cook | 12/11/2013

    " How come Dudes can make out with Goddesses in mid battle? my job suckes... "

    " I couldn't get enough of this... love it so much. Always will! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 H | 6/3/2013

    " 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 Jon Schwarz | 2/20/2013

    " Fantastic translation. So much fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sopo Chkoidze | 11/21/2012

    " my English teacher forced me to read this. for me it was just historical book for every adult "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracey Knorn | 4/2/2012

    " wasn't as impressed by this as by the odyssey. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kenzie | 3/18/2012

    " Good, but once in history, the sequel is even better :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kat | 6/3/2011

    " One of the best books, ever :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leigh | 5/20/2011

    " I love both the Fitzgerald and the Lattimore translations. This work is everything. My desert island book, if I were given the desperate situation of only having one book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 5/19/2011

    " This is one of the best books not written. It was part of an oral tradition like much of the Hebrew/Christian Bible, but more entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cristina | 5/15/2011

    " Tra i due poemi, il mio preferito. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alford | 5/7/2011

    " I try to read this through at least once a year. Each time is more moving to me then the last. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 5/4/2011

    " Of Homer's works, the Iliad is my favorite.

    This translation, I think, is the best one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cedar | 5/1/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 4/28/2011

    " Really good required read if your tiring to catch up on the classics, Read with the Oddssey. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 F. | 4/26/2011

    " I've read this work three times. There is something about the treatment, the language, that gives me a taste of the war. It doesn't feel like an ancient battle. I know these people. I recognize them. They're like me. Only I have to remind myself that this happened a long time ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hilary | 4/22/2011

About the Author
Author Homer

Homer (9th or 8th century BC) is the presumed author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, the two greatest epic poems of ancient Greece. Virtually nothing is known about his life. Tradition has it that he was blind. Most scholars believe he composed the Iliad and the Odyssey by relying on oral traditions. Their value lies chiefly in the poetry itself, moving from sublime passages about the gods and heroic exploits to passages expressing deep human emotion.
