Set against the backdrop of the Trojan Wars, the Iliad is the first, and arguably the greatest, work of western literature. In dramatic readings from different translations, and offering an account of a personal love affair with Classics, Raging about Achilles aims to bring fresh perspective to the classical text and explore its enduring influence.
