Publisher Description

This epic poem, probably written in the mid-fourth century AD, picks up right where Homer's Iliad ends (the funeral of Hector). The poet, Quintus of Smyrna, weaves together strands of the story from other sources (e.g. various plays, a surviving summary of the lost Epic Cycle, and possibly the Aenied), and comes up with a coherent account of the remainder of the Trojan War and its immediate aftermath.
