“Sing, Goddess, of the wrath of Pēleús’ son Akhilleús, the accursed wrath that caused Akhaíans countless woes and hurled headlong To Hāḯdēs a host of heroes’ souls And left their bodies spoil for dogs and all The birds of carrion. The will of Zeús Was brought to pass from when Agamémnōn, The Lord of men, opposed the consummate Akhilleús. Which God was it that set the two At odds?” So begins the Íliad, Homer’s epic song about the invasion of Troy by a force of Greeks led by Agamémnōn, King of Mykḗnē. They are seeking revenge for the abduction from Spártē of Helénē, the most beautiful woman on earth, by Páris, Prince of Troy. The walls of Troy seem to be impregnable and the fortunes of the Greeks are further set back when their greatest warrior, the fleet-of-foot Akhilleús, falls out with King Agamémnōn and withdraws from the battle. The Íliad recounts what happens in the next fifty days at the beginning of the tenth and final year of the war. By the end of this first volume, the fortunes of the Greeks are at a low ebb. The Trojans are storming the Argive wall and breach it to pour through and fight close to the ships, though Akhilleus still refuses to join the battle. This new translation adheres closely to the original text, rendering it in iambic pentameter, with attention to the dramatic similes characteristic of Homer. A detailed Introduction is provided together with Notes for Books I-XII.

This volume is a distinctive critical introduction to Homer's Iliad, the earliest epic poem, and the earliest known work of literature in ancient Greece. Michael Silk deals with the poem's historical context, its composition and its extensive influence, and relates its literary power to the peculiar coherence and inter-relation of such aspects of the poem as its style, character-portrayal and ideology. This revised edition takes account of recent scholarship in the field and includes an updated guide to further reading. It is essential reading for students of literature and classics.
