Editorial Reviews

Narrator Dikran Tulaine terrifically embodies the role of a grizzled storyteller recounting heroic deeds from the past, his voice layered with experience, shadows of regret, and pride. Homer's precursor to The Odyssey is set during the Trojan War, and this epic narrative tells of the battles and events during this period, such as the quarrel between King Agamemnon and the famous warrior Achilles, the death of Patroclus, and Achilles' revenge on Hector, as well as the involvement of the various gods and goddesses as they try to influence the battle to help their favorites. Tulaine's performance is superb, his smooth narration will draw listeners close and leave them enthralled with visions of glory in their heads.

Publisher's Summary

The Illiad dates back to the 8th century BC and is Homer's epic precursor to The Odyssey. Set during the Trojan War, it tells of battles and events during the weeks of a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles.
