Probably written in the 9th-century B.C. and based on an actual historical event that occurred in the 13th century B.C., Homer's Iliad is one of the great epic poems of the Western world. Out of a single episode in the Tale of Troy, Achilles' withdrawal from the fighting and his return home to kill the Trojan hero Hector, Homer created a timeless, dramatic tragedy. Translated into English from the Greek by Samuel Butler.
