We wanted to convince people that Penguin Audiobooks can bring alive the world of a book, making for deeply immersive literary experiences. And we chose ‘The Iliad’ from our range of Greek Epics to illustrate this point. We put The Iliad’s ‘Trojan Horse’ episode centre-stage in an ear-shaped arena in Ancient Greece; which was brought alive with careful attention to the crafts and architectural patterns of the time, the city planning, the daily-wear of people, the class divisions in society visible in the arena’s seating arrangements, right down to local rituals like the burning of incense of appease the Gods.
