Condensed Literature: The Iliad

  • YMCA HQ 60a Frame Ct Leederville, WA, 6007 Australia (map)

Achilles is angry, Paris is youthful and Agamemnon is trying to keep it together. Menelaus is missing his wife, Hector is trying his best and Zeus is watching from afar. There is so much going on that even over 600 pages only covers a few months of the decade long Trojan War. 

The Iliad is a really big book. It's a long book. And it's a poem! Homer wasn't very considerate of the modern audience when writing this epic. Wouldn't a shortened version, one filled with anachronisms, late night hosts and card battles be more interesting? There is only one way to find out.
