Read full description of the books La Ilíada:

La Íliada, junto con La Odisea, es la principal obra de Homero.
Este autor es un poeta "arqueológico". Pinta un pasado que lo precede en unos cuatro siglos. Por supuesto, los posibles rasgos históricos se enredan con los imaginarios. Así pues, "la época homérica" se refiere a la época aludida por el poema: la guerra troyana.
La Íliada relata la lucha de los pueblos aqueos -Grecia continental y parte de la insular- contra los teucros o troyanos que poseían la entrada de los Estrechos y, al margen del Helesponto (ribera asiática), habían levantado ya varias ciudades, una de las cuales, Troya, es el terreno de la epopeya homérica.
El asedio de Troya por los aqueos dura diez años, y en esta narración se nos presenta un fragmento de este largo período.

Read information about the author

Ebook La Ilíada read Online! In the Western classical tradition, Homer (Greek: Όμηρος) is considered the author of The Iliad and The Odyssey, and is revered as the greatest of ancient Greek epic poets. These epics lie at the beginning of the Western canon of literature, and have had an enormous influence on the history of literature.
When he lived is unknown. Herodotus estimates that Homer lived 400 years before his own time, which would place him at around 850 BCE, while other ancient sources claim that he lived much nearer to the supposed time of the Trojan War, in the early 12th century BCE. Most modern researchers place Homer in the 7th or 8th centuries BCE.
The formative influence of the Homeric epics in shaping Greek culture was widely recognized, and Homer was described as the teacher of Greece. Homer's works, which are about fifty percent speeches, provided models in persuasive speaking and writing that were emulated throughout the ancient and medieval Greek worlds. Fragments of Homer account for nearly half of all identifiable Greek literary papyrus finds.
