It is the tenth year of the Trojan War. The Greek allies have laid siege to
the city of Troy, but the leaders of the Greek factions are beginning to turn
on one another. When Agamemnon, the king of Mycenae, angers Achilles, leader
of the Myrmidons, the gods begin to intervene more directly in the conflict,
and the war becomes even more dangerous for the heroes of Greece and Troy. The
Iliad is attributed to the poet Homer and is the earliest surviving work of
Western literature. Composed sometime around the eighth century BC, the
ancient Greek poem has since been translated into many languages and serves as
an important source of information on ancient Greek culture and mythology. The
story of the Trojan War was adapted for the 2004 film Troy, which starred Brad
Pitt and Eric Bana.
