      The Iliad and the Odyssey, by Marcia Williams, is the retelling of the two most famous epics, by the same names. The Iliad starts with the marriage of king Peleus and the goddess Thetis, which later have a child by the name Achilles. In Troy, king Priam and Queen Hecuba also have a child, by the name of Paris. Paris grows up and eventually steals Helen, the wife of king Menelaus. This then sparks the Trojan War which sends various leader, including Odysseus, to defend the honor of Menelaus marri [...]

      I had read both of these when I was younger, and I never understood the stories to their full potential. My favorite of the two is the Odyssey. I think it's a story of self worth and if children can read it at a young age then they can start recognizing the importance of it. I also think by outlining the key components of the tragic hero, it allows for deeper analysis on the characters individually and as a collective unit.

      The great book uses illustrations to tell the ephic story from Aincien Mythology. Some of the images are beautiful, however some other are very confusing and difficult to understand. In addition, each illustration has small comments that sometimes don't make sense. Even though, the story is very interesting.

      My highschool let us read this book as part of our requirements in our English class, previously I dont have any liking of this book but when I go over it again when I find it in one of the stock boxes in the attic I now appreciate it more on how Homer's Iliad has been written. I can say this is an epic tale that we grew about and knowledge of this story shoudl not be missed at all.

      This was very Aussified and the drawings were somewhat dodgy.It seemed to show that clothing was optional in that time but then it makes note of it later showing with Odysseus not wanting women to see him naked but I'll have to look into that.It's a very VERY brief overview. I'll have to read the actual books though they seem pretty stupid stories.

      unfortunately I have read the book in my childhood and probably missed the things that Homer actually tried to convey, besides the mythical Gods. Nonetheless pretty binding book.
