The story centers on the critical events in the last year of the Trojan War, which lead to Achilleus’s killing of Hektor and the fall of Troy. But Homer’s theme is not simply war or heroism. With compassion and humanity, he presents a universal and tragic view of the world: human life lived under the shadow of suffering and death set against a vast and largely unpitying divine background.Additional informationWeight1.5 lbsDimensions7.7 × 4.9 × 1.4 in ReviewsThere are no reviews yet.
