An epic poem inspired by Homer’s Iliad.
Christopher Logue (d.2011) spent 30 years writing War Music, an extraordinary, contemporary version of Homer’s Iliad. The readings from War Music will take place in several venues within and outside Derry~Londonderry’s unique and contentious walls, which offer a perfect setting for the epic siege of Troy.
