This moving and lyrical adaptation of Homer's The Iliad focuses on the complex platonic and romantic relationship between Achilles and his close friend, Patroclus. She explores that relationship against the backdrop of the Trojan War with more tenderness than Homer ever did. So much in The Iliad was only hinted at, and Miller deftly fills in those details. She is clearly a student of the classics because she knows her Greek history.
