Book 7: Chapter 17 – Epics : How ancient they are!


  1. The Iliad (sometimes referred to as the Song of Ilion or Song of Ilium) is an ancient Greek epic poem. In the literary Trojan War of the Iliad, the Olympic gods, goddesses, and demigods fight and play great roles in human warfare.

  2. The Mahabharata is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, the other being the Ramayana. It is the longest Sanskrit epic. Its longest version consists of over 100,000 shloka or over 200,000 individual verse lines (each shloka is a couplet) and long prose passages.

  3. The Odyssey is one of two major ancient Greek epic poems. The Odyssey begins ten years after the end of the ten-year Trojan War (that is the subject of the Iliad), and Odysseus has still not returned home from the war.
