Description

A bold re-imagining of our civilization's greatest tale of war, from the acclaimed and bestselling author of "Silk". In "An Iliad", Alessandro Baricco re-creates the siege of Troy through the voices of twenty-one Homeric characters, in the narrative idiom of our modern imagination. From the return of Chryseis to the burial of Hector, we see through human eyes and feel with human hearts the unforgettable events first recounted almost three thousand years ago. Imbuing the stuff of legend with a startling new relevancy and humanity, Baricco gives us "The" "Iliad" as we have never known it. His transformative achievement is certain to delight and fascinate all readers of Homer's indispensable classic.
