The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background. The latest generation of titles in this series also feature glossaries and visual elements that complement the classic, familiar format. Homer's classic Greek epic, The Iliad, plunges you into the midst of the battle of Troy as swords flash and ancient angers flare — and CliffsNotes is at your side through the fray to shield you from being unprepared for class discussion. CliffsNotes character analyses and critical essays delve into the depths of well-fueled feuds and fatal choices to explain the context of the heroic exploits of Achilles, Agamemnon, Hektor, and Priam. As Achaians fight Trojans to the bitter end for the hand of fair Helen, turn to CliffsNotes on The Iliad for plot summaries and commentaries that make sense of the themes of strife and reconciliation in this fast-action work of classic literature. Other features that help you figure out this important work include A close look at the author's life, which offers insight into his writing A background of the epic poem, to help you understand the setting List of characters and their descriptions A map that diagrams the relationships among the characters Glossaries to help you fully understand the poem A review section that tests your knowledge, and suggested essay topics Classic literature or modern modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.… (mais)

Throughout school, at least since High School, it’s been pounded in my head: CliffsNotes Bad! Read Actual Book! We Can Tell If You Read CliffsNotes! Wooo!!

And it’s perhaps due to that reason that I’ve never actually picked up a CliffsNote book before. Call it fear and trepidation. Call it conditioning.

It was a matter of fate, then, that I came to acquire a copy of Robert J. Milch’s Cliffs Notes on Homer’s The Iliad (an older version of the guide for this epic poem). Since it found its way into my hands, and I have a compulsion to read everything I get, it was only a matter of time before I read it. I was particularly amused by the statement near the front, written in all caps, indicating that you are presumably robbing yourself of something if you read the Cliffs Notes and not the actual book itself. I wonder if this was done at the pressure of the educators.

Nevertheless, I read this book (don’t worry, hard-working teachers, I read The Iliad first!). My final impression was one of being impressed. I found that Milch did an excellent job of summarizing the poem as well as including enough historical information to clarify some concepts. While I doubt I would back up any assertions of interpretation of The Iliad on what was written in the Cliffs Notes, I did get a little more of an insight into one of the older surviving narratives of our culture.

Still, I can’t recommend it, because you might not read the actual book. And the teachers wouldn’t like that, would they? ( )
