Homer: Iliad I Summary

Homer: Iliad I by Homer

This edition of Iliad I provides an admirable introduction to a first reading of Homer. The book deals with the origin of Achilles' wrath which gives rise to the poem's main plot, which introduces principal characters such as Odysseus and Nestor and adumbrates the role the gods are to play in the story. This edition provides text with notes on facing pages, an introduction to Homer's poetry, bibliography, vocabulary, glossary of proper names and short appendices on Homeric dialect forms, prepositional usages, formulaic composition and the dactylic hexameter - everything needed by the student tackling Homeric epic for the first time.
