Product Description:

The epic poem details the events of the few days near the end of the Trojan war.

Review:

This excellent abridgement achieves the rare distinction of rendering the whole work more accessible. The sharpened narrative arc increases the emotional intensity of this most ancient and exciting of war stories, yet all the most moving speeches remain. Atmospheric details abound. Narrator Anton Lesser inhabits the characters--men and gods--speaking their words with fluidity...Characters are mentioned in qucik succession; one almost envisions the Achaeans and Trojans trotting from their locker rooms onto the field as their names and positions are announced. Once introduced, however, the warriors battle to their honorable ends, and the listener is gripped by the story's unrelenting pace. Orchestral selections herald each segment, highlighting the gravity and profundity of the poem's themes. --AudioFile 2008
