Through vividly portrayed characters and memorable descriptions of battles, Homer has glorified war in the Iliad.

Amidst everything else, Homer reminds the readers of the impermanence of mortals and their creations. The Iliad, written in dactylic or heroic hexameter, is among the oldest extant works of Western literature. Nearly all editions—ancient, modern and translations—are divided into twenty-four books. it continues to remain a rare classic with an extremely captivating lyrical beauty.
