Summary
A guide to the reading of The Iliad gives summaries, explanations of allusions, and general background material on how to appreciate this epic poem. Willcock provides a line-by-line commentary that explains allusions and Homeric conventions that a student or general reader could not be expected to bring to an initial encounter with the Iliad. Elizabeth A. Kaye specializes in communications as part of her coaching and consulting practice. She has edited Requirements for Certification since the 2000-01 edition
