The Iliad is a Greek epic poem attributed to Homer and published around the second half of the 8th century BC.

The Iliad begins with the wrath of Achilles, the most formidable warrior in ancient Greece, against Agamemnon, leader of the Achaean expedition. Their conflict triggers a series of events that change the course of the war against Troy and the fates of its protagonists.

In 24 cantos, The Iliad deals with themes such as anger, honor, revenge, or fate, intertwined with the Trojan War as a backdrop. It also explores divine intervention and the complex relationship between the gods of Olympus and the mortal world.

Discover this work, one of the pillars of Western literature, where you will learn stories of gods and men and reflect on the price of anger and pride. A work that undoubtedly defies the passage of time and offers lessons that are entirely valid in today's world.

"O Goddess! Sing the wrath of Peleusโ€™ son
Achilles; sing the deadly wrath that brought
Woes numberless upon the Greeks, and swept
To Hades many a valiant soul, and gave
Their limbs a prey to dogs and birds of airโ€”"
