The Iliad is one of the most famous examples of poetry passed on in the oral tradition - that is, not written down but passed on from speaker to speaker throughout recitation alone. Recounting the final weeks of ancient Troy's ten year struggle against the besieging Greeks, the Iliad was first committed to the page many centuries after its composition in the 9th century BC.
