The Epic Cycle


The Iliad

  Nine years into the siege of Troy, the greatest Achaean warrior, Achilles, is sidelined by rage and resentment following a conflict with his commander, Agamemnon. This short but intense phase of warfare leads to devastating losses on both sides, conflict between the gods, and great tragedy on a human level.   Rage! is a retelling of Homer's Iliad, building on three thousand years of Epic Cycle tradition.
