Description


It is a must-have for every literature enthusiast who wishes to maintain a

library of their own-the combination of two Homeric epics. The two very

important pillars of Greek culture narrate the events during the end of the

Trojan War and Ulysses's journey back home following the 10-year-long

war. Nearly 3,000 years after they were composed, the Iliad and the Odyssey

continue to be two of the most celebrated and widely read stories ever told.

Homer's poems provided a set model of heroism, nobility and good life

to which all Greeks subscribed. He provided a common set of values that

preserved the Greeks' ideas about themselves.
