In The Fall of Troy, acclaimed novelist and historian Peter Ackroyd creates a fascinating narrative that follows an archaeologist's obsession with finding the ruins of Troy, depicting the blurred line between truth and deception.Obermann, an acclaimed German scholar, fervently believes that his discovery of the ancient ruins of Troy will prove that the heroes of the Iliad, a work he has cherished all his life, actually existed. But Sophia, Obermann's young Greek wife, has her suspicions about his motivations — suspicions that only increase when she finds a cache of artifacts that her husband has hidden, and when a more skeptical archaeologist dies from a mysterious fever. With exquisite detail, Ackroyd again demonstrates his ability to evoke time and place, creating a brilliantly told story of heroes and scoundrels, human aspirations and follies, and the temptation to shape the truth to fit a passionately held belief. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Greek myth-makers crafted the downfall of Troy and its rulers into an archetypal illustration of ruthless conquest, deceit, crime and punishment, and the variability of human fortunes. This book examines the major episodes in the archetypal myth - the murder of Priam, the rape of Kassandra, the reunion of Helen and Menelaos, and the escape of Aineias - as witnessed in Archaic Greek epic, fifth-century Athenian drama, and Athenian black- and red-figure vase painting. It focuses in particular on the narrative artistry with which poets and painters balanced these episodes with one another and intertwined them with other chapters in the story of Troy. The author offers the first comprehensive demonstration of the narrative centrality of the Ilioupersis myth within the corpus of Trojan epic poetry, and the first systematic study of pictorial juxtapositions of Ilioupersis scenes on painted vases.

Riding the Wooden Horse tells the story of the various maneuvers of both Trojans in their city and the Greeks on the Dardan plain to end the stalemate between the two sides. The Greeks have Odysseus, the master schemer from Ithaca, forever scheming and looking for ways to delude the Trojans to their downfall. The Trojans have no one of such talents and must muddle along as best they can. The narrative also presents a host of females in Troy – Helen, Andromache, Cassandra and others – who would have been of enormous benefit to the Trojan cause, if the men had only listened to them. Vergil, the Roman poet who has been ordered by Emperor Augustus to write about Roman glorious beginning (the Aeneid) but who hopes the way may have another ending is also there. The fall of Troy is described in detail and what happened to the various characters on both sides of the War.

In the "Iliad" Homer tells the story of the last days of the War at Troy, and of the men who fought in it. "Trojan Women" creates previously unheard voices of the brave women of Troy, for whose possession the war began and tells their intimate, passionate, and tragic story. Helen, for whom the war was fought, Cassandra, the mad daughter of Priam King of Troy whose prophecies were dangerously ignored until the all came true, Hecabe, Queen of Troy who saw her world destroyed and her husband, King Priam, slain, and Andromache, perhaps the most tragic figure of all who lost parents, husband, and child. Through the eyes of the principle characters, Chryseis and Briseis, captured by Achilles as spoils of war and held for ransom, for slavery, or as playthings for men's pleasure, we see the last terrible days of battle and the capture and final destruction of Troy, the richest city in the world. Written in the tradition of Mary Renault's "Bull from the Sea," Yourcenar's "Memoirs of Hadrian," and Vidal's "Julian," reader/ reviewers have said of "Trojan Women," "I read it non-stop; I could not put it aside until I had finished it."
