Was there really a Trojan horse?

The Trojan war and the Trojan horse are omnipresent in the world of epic. In Aeneid book 2, we witness via a flashback the famous scene where the Trojans take into their city a giant wooden horse in which the Greek soldiers were hidden, and that night the Greeks jump out and ambush their foe; in Odyssey book 4, Menelaus at his court in Sparta tells this story to Odysseus’ son Telemachus; and the whole of the Iliad is framed around the Trojan war, even though the epic stops just short of the horse episode itself. 455 more words
