Summary
Many have forgotten that the subject of the "Iliad" was war-- not merely the poetical romance of the war at Troy, but war, in all its enduring devastation. This analysis of Homer's epic poem restores the poet's vision of the tragedy of war, addressing many of the central questions that define the war experience of every age
