The Iliad for Boys and Girls PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Iliad for Boys and Girls free pdf The Iliad is typically described as one of the greatest war stories of all time. Set during the Trojan War, this timeless story vividly conveys the horror and heroism of men and gods wrestling with towering emotions and battling amid devastation and destruction. Homer's tale is a compassionate view of human life lived under the shadow of suffering and death in the face of an often uncaring divinity. To call it a war story does not begin to describe the emotional sweep of its action and characters in the 10th and final year of the Greek siege of Troy.
