Iliad is an epic poem about the Trojan War. It is said to have been written by Homer. It was written around the eighth century BC. The poem tells of a quarrel between the Greek warrior, Achilles, and the leader of the Greek forces, Agamemnon, over a slave girl. Although the poem is set during a few weeks in the last year of the ten-year war, the entire story of the Trojan War is told.
