At the heart of this epic saga lies the siege of Troy, a decade-long conflict sparked by the abduction of Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world, and fueled by the pride and ambition of kings and heroes. As the armies of Greece and Troy clash on the battlefield, Homer paints a vivid portrait of the heroism and folly, the triumphs and tragedies that define the human experience.
