Historical fiction novel. The story begins with an actual historical tragedy - the 1672 lynching of the Dutch Grand Pensionary (roughly equivalent to a modern Prime Minister) Johan de Witt and his brother Cornelis, by a wild mob of their own countrymen - one of the most painful episodes in Dutch history, described by Dumas with a dramatic intensity.
The Iliad is one of the two major ancient Greek epic poems of Homer and the first and greatest achievement of Classical Greek civilization. It tells of the last years of the siege of the city of Ilion (Troy) by the Greeks under King Agamemnon. It explores the conflict between love and honour, rage and control, a long life and a glorious life; all under the watchful and meddling Gods.
More Musketeering adventure! This time the musketeers are in conflict over the man in the iron mask who is thought to be King Louis XIV's twin brother, isolated as an infant and now held prisoner in the Bastille for the last 18 years. The throne of France is threatened as he escapes to seek revenge. Will The Three Musketeers manage to fight and save their country this time in their final saga?
The Odyssey is one of the two major ancient Greek epic poems of Homer. The action takes place after Homer's Iliad and details the journey home of the Greek hero Odysseus (Ulysses). The journey takes years, in part due to the Gods' disagreements over his eventual fate, and it is only when he is finally home that his troubles really begin.
