    Helen of Troy by Ronni Kern( visu )
    1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
    A re-telling of the classic tale of power and corruption, moved by the passions and desires of towering personalities. Aphrodite promises the most beautiful woman in the world to Paris, Prince of Troy, but alas, Helen is already married to Menelaus King of Sparta, brother of Agamemnon. When she escapes to Troy with Paris, Menelaus rallies the kings of Greece to attack Troy. Also included are the prophecies of Cassandra, the sacrifice of Iphigenia, the duel between Hector and Achilles, and even crafty Odysseus makes an appearance. In a return to grand Hollywood tradition, the battle scenes feature a 'cast of thousands' rather than CGI effects
    The husbands : an account of books III and IV of Homer's Iliad by Christopher Logue( Book )
    5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 279 libraries worldwide
    "In The Husbands, Logue trains his lyrical eye upon Homer's ultimate femme fatale, Helen of Troy, and her ardently mortal husbands, Menelaus and Paris." "Carrying the Homeric world into our own, Logue's language is at once musical, profoundly tender, and frighteningly graphic. With cinematic speed, disarming confidence, and lyrical care, Logue gives us a reading of classic literature that makes unquestionably clear its relevance to our own time"--Jacket
