More than three thousand years ago, two armies faced each other in an epic battle that rewrote history and came to be known as the Trojan War. The Iliad, Homer’s legendary account of this nine-year ordeal, is considered the greatest war story of all time and one of the most important works of Western literature. This stunning graphic novel captures all the grim glory of Homer’s epic. Dynamic illustrations take readers directly to the plains of Troy, into the battle itself, and lay bare the complex emotions of the men, women, and gods whose struggles fueled the war and determined its outcome.

The Iliad describes the events of the ten-year siege of the city of Troy, by a coalition of Greek states. The story unfolds during a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles. Although the story covers only a few weeks in the final year of the war, the Iliad mentions or alludes to many of the Greek legends about the siege; the earlier events, such as the gathering of warriors for the siege, the cause of the war, and related concerns tend to appear near the beginning. Then the epic narrative takes up events prophesied for the future, such as Achilles' looming death and the sack of Troy, prefigured and alluded to more and more vividly, so that when it reaches an end, the poem has told a more or less complete tale of the Trojan War. The Iliad is paired with something of a sequel in The Odyssey. Having spent ten years fighting in the Trojan War, Odysseus embarks on his journey back to Ithica. To get there he must deceive a giant Cyclops, face Poseidon's wrath, escape cannibalism, defeat the witch-goddess Circe, skirt the land of the Sirens, sail between a six-headed monster and a raging whirlpool, and escape captivity on the island of Calypso. But perhaps his biggest threat is his prolonged absence from home, as 108 suitors are vying for his wife's hand in marriage. Both stories were intended to be sung by an epic poet. Along with The Odyssey, The Iliad is among the oldest extant works of Western literature, and its written version is usually dated to around the eighth century BC. In this edition of Samuel Butler's translation, the names of the gods and characters have been restored from Latin to the original Greek. This edition is limited to 1,000 copies.

Homeric Misdirection

It is a familiar problem for authors of all kinds: how to make the tale interesting when the audience knows - or thinks it knows - the end of the story.

It is a familiar problem for authors of all kinds: how to make the tale interesting when the audience knows - or thinks it knows - the end of the story. As James V. Morrison illustrates in Homeric Misdirection, delay, suspense, and uncertainty all play essential roles in revitalizing the Iliad's traditional story of the Trojan War. In this persuasive and suggestive work, the author studies key passages that anticipate later events in the epic. An exploration of Zeus' prophecies, Achilles' threats, and the poet's own commentary indicates that the effect of such misdirection is to undermine the audience's belief in its own ability to predict outcomes. Ultimately this uncertainty reminds the poet's listeners of the limits of their own knowledge. This in turn creates a link between the doubt and uncertainty of the audience and that of characters in the Iliad. Homeric Misdirection will be of interest not only to students and scholars in classical studies, but also to those interested in the development of narrative, audience-response criticism, and epic literature.
