The Iliad tells the tale of the fall of the city of Troy at the hands of an invading force of greek states.

Told from the perspective of multiple characters, including the Gods of Greek antiquity, the bulk of the story takes place in the final few weeks of the siege.

Themes of heroism, hubris and fate run throughout the story, with direct interference by the gods attributed to miraculous feats or unfortunate events.
