Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Does the Iliad even have any connections to Sicily? I put the Odyssey on this list because there is a theory according to which the Messina Straits are the location of the Scylla and Charybdis episode, but the Iliad ...? That's all set in the Eastern Mediterranean I think -- or am I missing something?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I can't think of anything that relates to Sicily in it.

Does anybody have any objections against deleting "The Iliad"? (Not that it's not one of the greatest works of literature ever produced, but seeing as this is supposed to be a list of books related to Sicily ...)

No objection. I recently heard the whole Iliad as audio book, and there was absolutely nothing in it concerning Sicily. I even do not know any pseudo-scientific theory which claims such a connection. -- Whereas in the Odyssee explicitly a Siculean servant is mentioned.

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) ... and Sicily is discussed as a possible location for several of Odysseus's adventures, most notably Scylla and Charybdis (Strait of Messina).

ETA: I see somebody already did the honors for "The Iliad" ...
