Homer - Iliad by Stanley Lombardo
Book Description12 CDs. Paris, a prince of Troy's royal family, was asked to judge the beauty of three goddesses -- Hera, Aphrodite, and Athena -- and so settle a dispute that arose among them when Eris, the Goddess of Discord, threw a golden apple inscribed "For the Fairest" among the guests at the wedding of Peleus and Thetis. Paris awarded the golden apple to Aphrodite, who had promised him as a bribe the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen, daughter of Zeus and wife of Menelaus, king of Sparta. Paris sailed to Sparta and stole Helen away; and Menelaus, together with his brother Agamemnon, ruler of Mycenae and the most powerful warlord in all Greece, raised an army and sailed to Troy to get her back. The invading force consisted of over a thousand ships, their troops commanded by Greece's finest heroes, the greatest of whom was Achilles, son of Peleus and the sea-goddess Thetis. The Greeks drew their ships up onto the beach at Troy and laid siege to the city. The Trojans, led by Hector, son of King Priam, held them off for ten years. Then, in the tenth summer of the war, Achilles and Lord Agamemnon had a quarrel -- over a girl -- with disastrous results. Approximate running time: 900 minutes.
