    If you have ever read Homer s Iliad, this book will seem really familiar to you If you haven t, you ll never know that this is basically a retelling of Homer s great epic The difference between Homer and Clarke, though, is that you ll find Clarke much easier to read if you found Homer impossible I ve read Homer s version and loved it I m a fan of the Greek myths and tragedies I can say with all honesty that Clarke s version of the story of Troy is wonderfully written, but some might take is If you have ever read Homer s Iliad, this book will seem really familiar to you If you haven t, you ll never know that this is basically a retelling of Homer s great epic The difference between Homer and Clarke, though, is that you ll find Clarke much easier to read if you found Homer impossible I ve read Homer s version and loved it I m a fan of the Greek myths and tragedies I can say with all honesty that Clarke s version of the story of Troy is wonderfully written, but some might take issue with it if they areparticular about details This is a fiction book, not a historical account For anyone familiar with archaeology and history, please keep that in mind as you read this tale It makes it muchenjoyable As for how faithful it is to the Iliad, Clarke used several reliable sources and account for his version of the retelling Armed with these sources, Clarke writes a compelling novel in modern day English that everyone should find enjoyable and easy to read As a side note I ve yet to even look for confirmation of this, but several people have told me that the war of Troy didn t happen because Troy doesn t exist Whether you are a proponent for this or not, you ll still find this book an enjoyable work of fiction

    I found this to be a clever retelling of Homer s epic Essentially, it takes the supernatural components out of the story, grounding the characters in amodern understanding of reality The language is also much easier to read, though in no way better.For people who don t have the patience to read The Iliad, this book will tell you the story for half the brain price Unfortunately, you also get what you pay for There is beauty in the way The Iliad reads, that this, or any other adaptatio I found this to be a clever retelling of Homer s epic Essentially, it takes the supernatural components out of the story, grounding the characters in amodern understanding of reality The language is also much easier to read, though in no way better.For people who don t have the patience to read The Iliad, this book will tell you the story for half the brain price Unfortunately, you also get what you pay for There is beauty in the way The Iliad reads, that this, or any other adaptation, will never equal Why have Brad Pitt when you can have Achilles Actually, it s best not to answer that question

    If you re unfamiliar with the various stories surrounding the ancestors and players in The Trojan War, you might find this book a readable aggregator of the characters and myths I ended up skimming most of it because I knew the myths and Clarke added nothing new to the story It seems the antithesis of Gemmell, who completely rewrote the War and well known characters in a way that almost parodied itself Clarke is very conservative and, IMO, unimaginative Hoping to find something in the happy If you re unfamiliar with the various stories surrounding the ancestors and players in The Trojan War, you might find this book a readable aggregator of the characters and myths I ended up skimming most of it because I knew the myths and Clarke added nothing new to the story It seems the antithesis of Gemmell, who completely rewrote the War and well known characters in a way that almost parodied itself Clarke is very conservative and, IMO, unimaginative Hoping to find something in the happy middle one of these days

    I truly enjoyed reading this book, as I do any that revolve around the Trojan War Trouble is, having read over a dozen translations of Homer s Iliad, it left me a little disappointed only in the retelling The writing is very fluid It is well written, but for any Homer lover, it may fall slightly below expectations.

    I will never get tired of the Trojan War It s one of the world s oldest stories and it offers everything love, war, sacrifice, pain, loss, triumph There is a reason why it s survived nearly 3000 years and why so many authors choose to retell it I m on a quest to read as many versions of the epic as I can This quest began years ago when I took a University course about Homer s Odyssey and only grew stronger when I devoted the Major Research Paper MRP of my Master s Degree to studying the I will never get tired of the Trojan War It s one of the world s oldest stories and it offers everything love, war, sacrifice, pain, loss, triumph There is a reason why it s survived nearly 3000 years and why so many authors choose to retell it I m on a quest to read as many versions of the epic as I can This quest began years ago when I took a University course about Homer s Odyssey and only grew stronger when I devoted the Major Research Paper MRP of my Master s Degree to studying the Odyssey Unfortunately, my journey has been full of disappointment and frustration A lot of the retellings are either completely inaccurate, spend too much time on self insert characters, or turn everyone into terrible, unlikeable people Then I found Lindsay Clarke s Troy.The War at Troy and its sequel, The Return from Troy, which I read out of order , managed to satisfy the balance between accuracy and good story telling that I ve been craving in a modern version of the epic The changes are subtle and stay true to Homer s version some scenes are close mirrors of their Iliadic counterparts, and this may seem to some to be a lack of originality, but Clarke brings a depth of description and characterization that displays true talent My only real complaint is that the first book could have been longer His style worked wonderfully with in the Return, but a lot of this first book isof a summary of the story than actually living it However, even with a large cast of characters many of whom do get short shrift Clarke manages to give the sense that all of them are the heroes of their own tales.Clarke approaches the tale from the side of the Greeks With the exception of Paris, and to a lesser extent, Priam, Deiphobus and Hector, the Trojans are underdeveloped and the focus is on the heroes, Agamemnon, Odysseus, Achilles, Menelaus, and of course, Helen Not one of his main characters is presented as wholly evil or wholly good Even Agamemnon and Paris, two heroes that I have always struggled to sympathize with, have complex motivations and loyalties Clarke does not shy away from the darker elements of the story and includes the tale of Iphigenia and even the tragic story of Ajax the Greater I appreciate it when the stories aren t dumbed down because the material is too dark.The most fascinating aspect of this book for me, though, was the love triangle of Helen, Menelaus, and Paris Modern audiences are captivated by the love between Helen and Paris and I have yet to read a version where he abducts her against her will Clarke s is no exception in this regard However, he chooses not to demonize Menelaus or cast the Paris Helen romance as unending, true love Before Paris comes, Helen loves Menelaus and is content in her marriage to him what they lack in passion, they make up for in friendship and kindness Paris comes and the two of them fall into a deep infatuation that drives them both to betray Menelaus trust and spark the ten year combat that kills so many This part isn t so unusual, but what Clarke did was show how their love could not survive such hardship and by the end of the story, they have grown to despise each other It s farrealistic and devastating this way, and harkens back to the epic tradition In the Iliad, Helen has grown weary of Paris and longs to return to her old home and way of life.If you have the patience to read epic poetry, then by all means, of course read the originals I recommend the Stanley Lombardo version , but if you just want to experience the overall story and find the Homeric version confusing, then read Lindsay Clarke s Troy

    It s impossible to read the English classics or even to have learnt to read at the time I did without having some sort of familiarity with the people and some of the major events of the Trojan War I ve never read The Iliad, but Robert Graves s The Greek Myths, credited as a source for this, has sat on my shelves these thirty years and been read at least once in that time However I don t remember it containing the overview, big picture, whole story that this re telling gave There is also a It s impossible to read the English classics or even to have learnt to read at the time I did without having some sort of familiarity with the people and some of the major events of the Trojan War I ve never read The Iliad, but Robert Graves s The Greek Myths, credited as a source for this, has sat on my shelves these thirty years and been read at least once in that time However I don t remember it containing the overview, big picture, whole story that this re telling gave There is also a good feel for the main characters and their motivations, so that the main protagonists, even Helen, seemedreal than they do from paintings and the familiar episodes The main problem I had, as someone who glosses odd names, was keeping track of the huge cast of supporting characters Still, when I get round to reading Homer s version, I can always make use of t internet to remind me who s who

    A great read in my opinion I ve never read The Illiad perhaps some day I ll get round to it but knew the basics of the story This explanded on that basic knowledge and I found it thoroughly captivating It was very well written and moved at a compelling pace so that I made my way through it far too quickly I imagine that I ll read this one again and again.

    Well, I got through it I thought about putting it aside because I wasn t enjoying it much, but for quizzing and general knowledge purposes this was quite an accessible way to finally be able to tell my Achilles from my Ajax.I m sure it s written fine I could picture everything happen, and had a very clear visual image of all the characters they really came alive as people The only problem is, it turns out that the Iliad as a story is, um, basically a litany of blokes being really entitled, Well, I got through it I thought about putting it aside because I wasn t enjoying it much, but for quizzing and general knowledge purposes this was quite an accessible way to finally be able to tell my Achilles from my Ajax.I m sure it s written fine I could picture everything happen, and had a very clear visual image of all the characters they really came alive as people The only problem is, it turns out that the Iliad as a story is, um, basically a litany of blokes being really entitled, comparing the size of their egos, and treating women like chattel I m done with that
