Homer’s Iliad, an account of the ten-year Trojan War, is one of the canonical texts of Western literature. In An Iliad, a radical new vision of this timeless tale, Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare have restored Homer’s classic to a single wandering poet who recounts a story of three thousand years of human conflict and destruction.
