the Illiad

I've dreamed about reading Homer for a very long time. Since school. I had found the names and the storyline very complicated. The names are twisty and difficult to remember.

Now, that i possess copies of Homer, i'm planning to start soon. Especially after having watched the film: Troy. It portrays a sub-plot of the Illiad. Agememnon, Hector, Paris, Nestor, Achilles, Helen, Apollo.... The person who's played the part of Hector is really cute. So much better than Brad Pitt who's played Achilles. I never did watch the credits, i was asked to do something right then.

Hope to continue reading till the last page of the book.
