review The War at Troy × eBook or Kindle ePUB Vigorous new life is breathed into the myth's of Homer's Iliad in Lindsay Clarke's new dramatic retelling of the wars fought for the Bronze Age City of TroyParis and Helen Agamemnon and Clytaemnestra Achilles Odysseus and Hector are skilfully rejuvenated in this startlingly contemporary drama of the passionsThe people who lived in those days were closer to gods than we are and great deeds and marvels were commoner then which is why the stories we have from them are nobler and richer than our own So that those stories should not pass from the earth I have decided to set down everything I. If you re unfamiliar with the various stories surrounding the ancestors and players in The Trojan War you might find this book a readable aggregator of the characters and myths I ended up skimming most of it because I knew the myths and Clarke added nothing new to the story It seems the antithesis of Gemmell who completely rewrote the War and well known characters in a way that almost parodied itself Clarke is very conservative and IMO unimaginative Hoping to find something in the happy middle one of these days
