Publisher's Summary

The Iliad of Homer is the earliest work of European literature that we have. Created in the eighth century BC it has continued to arouse interest for over 2000 years.

The author intended it to be heard, as delivered by a bard or rhapsode who had made the presentation of Greek epic poetry his profession, and who had command of the vocal resources and the dramatic power to move his audience.

This recording, even allowing for the difference between English and Greek, provides an experience closer to that experienced by the ancient audience.

It appears to start in the middle of the story.

Chapter one appears to be well into the story, so it's very confusing. Waste of money.
