The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background. The latest generation of titles in this series also feature glossaries and visual elements that complement the classic, familiar format.

Homer's classic Greek epic, The Iliad, plunges you into the midst of the battle of Troy as swords flash and ancient angers flare — and CliffsNotes is at your side through the fray to shield you from being unprepared for class discussion. CliffsNotes character analyses and critical essays delve into the depths of well-fueled feuds and fatal choices to explain the context of the heroic exploits of Achilles, Agamemnon, Hektor, and Priam. As Achaians fight Trojans to the bitter end for the hand of fair Helen, turn to CliffsNotes on The Iliad for plot summaries and commentaries that make sense of the themes of strife and reconciliation in this fast-action work of classic literature.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

One of the most important poems of all time, The Iliad is an epic that deals with a sliver of the Trojan War, its tenth year. From this poem we derive much of our understanding of the ancient world. It also sets a standard of literature that is rarely matched.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have May 24 2004
Format:Paperback
especially if you're new to Greek, or are somewhat intimidated by Homer. Any student studying The Iliad should have a copy of this to help them keep the families and factions in order. However - if you're already familiar with Greek and/or Homer, this won't provide you with much info that you don't already know. I would think the student would benefit the most from this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Supplement to the Novel! Nov. 8 2011
By Jane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read the novel translated by Samuel Butler and reading the notes brought it all together even more.

I found the Iliad easy to read but the notes offered a concise review(if you will) of the action.....something I never tired of reading about!

3.0 out of 5 stars On the thin side March 9 2011
By susane07 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed in this guide. I wanted to use it as a supplement as I feared I would not totally understand the Iliad. When I started reading the Iliad, I realized that one doesn't need this Cliff Notes. The Iliad is very readable. I did not think this guide made much substantive contributions - it just says what you could already figure out from reading the book. Not much insight here. Pass on it.
