The Iliad By Homer
eBook (ePub): $4.99
The Iliad is an epic poem by Homer dating from around the 8th century BC. It takes place during the Trojan war, and it depicts the battles and events that occur during a fight between King Agamemnon... More > and the warrior Achilles. From here, if you've never read this poem before, you might need a white board to keep track of everyone. But it wouldn't be an epic without the full pantheon of gods swinging in and out of battle the whole time, now would it? Between the Iliad and the Odyssey, Homer is still the font from which so much literature flows. Their themes are so elemental that they were actually considered gods at one point: Fate, Time, Wrath, etc. And just about every hero-based book or film you can think of owes a debt to Homer's classics.< Less
The Odyssey By Homer
eBook (ePub): $3.99
Homer's Odyssey is the sequel to the Iliad, and it's synonymous with epic adventure. Once again we're faced with some potential Greco-Roman confusion, as the hero this time is Odysseus, or Ulysses,... More > depending on one's language. Either way this poem focuses on our hero's long journey home after the 10 year Trojan War. Thinking he was dead, many suitors tried to get up on Odysseus' woman in his absence, but eventually his story is told to her: he has been to the ends of the earth and back, and is trying to return to his love. It seems a likely story, such as one might make up when asked "Where have you BEEN for 10 years?" Odysseus: "So there I was... fighting a Cyclops, and I tell him my name is 'nobody,' and when I instruct my men to attack him he shouts 'Help, nobody is attacking me!' And no one came to help. Ah that was a good one. Honey?" That 2800 year old joke and more can be found in Homer's epic, the Odyssey.< Less
