Classic Hot Totty (review of The Iliad)

A trip to the beach would not be
complete without my knitting and
The Iliad. Ooh, toffee meringues ...
I've been considering doing some reviews of classical erotica.  Unfortunately these will have to be here rather than on my review site as they rarely conform to modern guidelines on safe sex.  

Where better to start than a classical classic:  Homer's Iliad.  This blogpost is for MatthewVett, who shares my appreciation of classical literature and Asian women.
