OPIS

The god touches his finger to the arrow's fletching. Then he breathes, a puff of air - as if to send dandelions flying, to push toy boats over water. And the arrow flies, straight and silent, in a curving, downward arc towards Achilles' back.Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. Despite their differences, the boys develop a tender friendship, a bond which blossoms into something deeper as they grow into young men.But when Helen of Sparta is kidnapped, Achilles is dispatched to distant Troy to fulfil his destiny. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus follows, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear." />A beautiful new limited edition paperback of The Song of Achilles, published as part of the Bloomsbury Modern Classics list.The god touches his finger to the arrow's fletching.

Achilles is a demi-god, destined to gain glory and immortality in a war. The Song of Achilles Review. The Song of Achilles is centred on two main characters: Patroclus and Achilles.

The not uninteresting conceit of Miller's book is that it's narrated by a character who is both central to the action ... The Song of Achilles is ambitious (as is Achilles himself). The story is told from the perspective of his friend and lover.
