The word means ‘a poem about Ilium’, but the real theme of the poem is best summed up in its opening line, translated by the first English verse translator, Chapman, as ‘Achilles’ baleful wrath’. For this is a poem not so much about war as about warriors. It is provoked by the ‘abduction’ of Helen, the wife of Menelaus, Achilles’ kinsman. We are told of no other cause, and only an age so preoccupied with instrumental reason, with the ‘real’ meaning of events, will find, as did the Hollywood screenplay writers of Wolfgang Petersen’s ﬁlm Troy (2003), a political subtext: trade rivalry between the Greeks and their rivals, the Trojans.
