“It is in my mind,” said Zeus, “to cause the great and glorious war of Troy, that shall be famous to the end of time.” The Tale of Troy tells of the last great adventure of the Heroic Age. It is the story of Helen and the judgment of Paris; of the gathering of the heroes and the siege of Troy; of Achilles, reared by the centaur on wild honey and the marrow of lions; of Odysseus, his great strategy of the Wooden Horse, and of his many adventures on his long journey home to Greece. These legends have been told again and again, passed down for over three thousand years. This masterly retelling makes them as vivid and exciting as they were all those years ago.

Author Bio: Roger Lancelyn Green

Roger Lancelyn Green (1918–1987) became interested in myths and legends at an early age. Frequently absent from school due to illness, he spent his time browsing through the books of the magnificent Queen Anne library at his home in England. He loved fairy tales, adventure stories, and traditional legends from around the world. While at Oxford he made a special study of fairy tales and myths. He published a large number of books, but it is his skill as a master storyteller that gives the tales their freshness alongside their familiarity.
