It is the tenth year of the siege of Troy, and no one knows who will win. The gods watch from Mount Olympus and fight, too, some for the Greeks and some for the Trojans. There are battles, and quarrels, and Achilles - the greatest warrior among the Greeks - refuses to fight any longer. Butthen the Trojan champion Hector kills Achilles's great friend, and Achilles goes out to avenge him . . . Homer's great epic poem is brought to life in this critically acclaimed retelling. Barbara Leonie Picard's classic version captures the excitement of this tale of pride, daring, love, and vengeance.
