Homer: The Iliad - v1 27 May 07

As requested by Patricia. This is the Samuel Butler translation which I find to be the best of the bunch.

Paris, Helen of Troy, Ajax, Hector. Boy steals girl and country goes to war. The epic saga of humans struggling among themselves and with gods who sometimes have the disposition of a spoiled seven year old.
