What the Illiad is really about,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Memorial (Paperback)
This long poem is a response to Homer's Illiad which makes clear that any war poem is really a death poem. It reveals The Illiad as a poem which memorializes all the fallen in that long war at Troy and demonstrates that The Illiad was never a poem which glorified war, whatever generation of classics teachers have said.
