Comments: The Iliad

That's a far better description of the story than I've gotten almost anywhere else.

"Arma virumque cano
laeti qui primus ab oris"

That's as much as I remember, and it's not even the Iliad, is it?

So... when is he starting lessons in classical Greek?! Or, if he is interested in Virgil... ;-)

Seriously hat a fine example of the benefits of starting out as you mean to go on. The Boy reads, writes, and thinks.

I'm trying to remember the children's version -- fairly recent -- of the Iliad I've seen. It's around here some place, I think. When (or, sadly, if) I find it, I'll email you with particulars.
