Stephen Fry’s Troy builds upon the work he began in his previous two books, Mythos and Heroes, collecting the various elements of Greek mythology, history, archaeology and more to tell the whole story of the Trojan War, beginning with the events that slowly foreshadowed the war in such a way as to make it seem inevitable. Where Homer’s Iliad tells a fraction of the story, Fry intends for his account to inform the modern reader, balancing the various different accounts, choosing those that offer narrative cohesion though making those choices clear in footnotes. He uses somewhat modern dialogue, the better to make the actors understandable to his reader. In fact, when reading this, one cannot help but imagine an exceptional classics or history teacher covering these events over a series of lectures in order to help explain the full scope of the Trojan War to their students.

Fry catalogues the necessary backstory leading up to the Trojan War, pointing out that Homer’s Iliad only begins 10 years into the conflict (on page 184 of Fry’s account) and ends prior to its ends (pg. 251 of Fry’s account). Fry concludes with two appendices. He examines the nature of myth and its relationship to history in the first, while the second looks at Homer and the storytelling tradition surrounding him. Fry describes the difficulty in telling histories of the Heroic Age as a fight between “the need to present a detailed dynastic chronology, filled with consistent relationships, backgrounds and genealogies” and “the need to present the mysteries of a poetical world of myth and miracle whose characteristics and histories should never be expected to travel obediently along the rails of cause and effect” (pg. 336). Following this, Fry discusses the history of written tradition in Greece, Homer’s place in literary history, and subsequent attempts to discover the historical accuracy of his work.

He explains the various relationships of the large cast, both moral and divine, with notes to where he previously covered further details of unrelated stories in Mythos and Heroes. Fry’s work resembles Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology in that he presents a modern retelling of the stories essential to the mythological history of Troy and that he does so in a way that both uses modern vernacular while keeping the quintessential and most quotable elements of the stories intact. In that, Fry contributes to the long tradition of retelling these stories for education and for entertainment. ( )

Fry is the best, honestly. His wit, warmth, and expert storytelling make this book an absolute joy.
5/5, wasn’t expecting anything less. ( )
