“The Iliad is the first great book, and the first great book about the suffering and loss of war.” Charlotte Higgins, The Guardian

“It is blood-poundingly, eye-achingly told. As my professor said, everyone should read this, and if you can read it in the sun, lying in a hammock after your graduation, all the better.” Sparrow
