So where do things stand now on the historicity of Troy and the Trojan War? To
recapitulate, the thesis of the original edition of this book was as follows. The
mound of Hisarlik was the site of the historical city which the Greek poet Homer
says was sacked by the Greeks during the Heroic Age. Bronze Age Hisarlik was
probably the chief seat of one of the important states of western Anatolia (Aegean
Turkey). These are known from diplomatic letters written on clay tablets which
have ...

For the greater part of three thousand years since the date of the Trojan War, the
imagination of poets and dramatists has been busy with its story. This has
become the subject of the most famous of all legends and has inspired many of
the greatest works of literature that the world has produced. For this reason parts
of the tale are very familiar, yet because of the length of the whole, the connection
between one well-known episode and another is often obscure. The Iliad begins
in the ...

Our earliest literary evidence for the tradition of the Trojan War as a whole is the
Epic Cycle. This was a collection of poems about the origins of the gods, the
Theban War, and the Trojan War.1 The poems in the Trojan War section were
called the Cypria, the Aethiopis, the Little Iliad, the Iliou Per- sis, the Nosti, and
the Telegony. Although the poems in the Cycle are unfortunately lost, we do
know much about them through summaries and testimony from the ancient world.

Trojan Women has two major predecessors among surviving Greek tragedies
both by Euripides: Trojan Women and Hecuba. Seneca's play differs significantly
from both. Play and Myth The Greeks fought a ten-year war at Troy to recapture
Helen, the wife of Menelaus, king of Sparta. Helen was abducted by Paris, one of
the sons of Priam, king of Troy, and his wife, Hecuba. Under the leadership of
Menelaus' brother Agamemnon, a fleet of a thousand ships gathered at Aulis in
Boeotia ...

Finding Troy and the Trojan War For the ancient Greeks, Homer was, in the
words of Plato, "the best and the most divine of poets." They doubted neither his
existence nor the reality of the events he described. In the nineteenth and early
twentieth centuries c.e., on the other hand, that view was replaced by the verdict
expressed confidently by J.A.K. Thomson: "That Homer is no more than a type,
the representative of all the minstrels who preserved the poetry passing under his
name, ...

Finally, unrest in Greece in the period 1210–1180 might have made the Trojan
War more, not less, likely, because it might have tempted Greek politicians to
export violence abroad. History is made up not of stones or words but of people.
Was there ever a queen named Helen and did her face launch a thousand ships
? Was there a warrior named Achilles who in a rage killed thousands? Did
Aeneas suffer through a bitter war only to have the last laugh as a king? What

All these considerations — and not least those which I have formulated here
today — lead me to side with those who hesitate in discrediting an historical
basis for the Trojan War. The date of the Trojan War was a subject of frequent
discussion in antiquity as well as today. As is to be expected, opinions were and
are not altogether unanimous. Thus one feels justified in propounding his own
opinion. Should we follow Herodotus, for example, the source chronologically
nearest Homer, ...
