Trojan War FAQs > Homer's Trojan Horse
I received the following in email:
I'm reading the Illiad to my grandson (age 10) and I enticed him with brief descriptions of the Trojan Horse event... looking ahead in the book, I realize that the Illiad ends before the "Horse" event takes place.
Question: Did Homer write about the "Horse" ? can you recommend a book ?
The men inside the Trojan Horse are described in Book IV of the Odyssey.
