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.

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.

HASH(0xa2251edc) out of 5 stars On the thin side March 9 2011

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.

HASH(0xa2354f6c) 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!

HASH(0xa298cc00) out of 5 stars Realize the Greatness Before You Jan. 9 2015
By J. Rhoades - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Having never read the Iliad before, I thought it might be nice to ClffsNotes as I read it in order to better understand it. WOW! This little book way exceeded my expectations. It opened up the Iliad to me so I could recognize why it is so magnificent. The chapter summaries were brief, but excellent. The Character notes and critical essays at the end contributed tremendously to both my understanding and appreciation. I even found the short quizzes at the end an enjoyable way to assess my general comprehension of Homer's work. In short, the ClffsNotes allowed me to recognize the greatness of the Iliad. I will definitely use CliffsNotes when I read other great classics.

really needed this book for my class. it helped me understand the bigger themes and pictures i wasn't understanding when i read the Iliad. The Iliad is one of the most boring, confusing books i have ever read and this helped it become alot more clear to me. Thanks cliffnotes!
