The Iliad’s Influence

Thank you for your swift and concise reply to my Romeo and Juliet. I was wondering then, did you draw inspiration from the Illiad, particularly the Siege of Troy, when you drew up your saga of the War of the Usurper? Thank you very much for your time!

I draw inspiration from everywhere, like most writers. But THE ILIAD was not a direct influence, by any means.
