Helen of Troy

Andrew Lang


Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 103 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1882.

Description

A story in rhyme of the fortunes of Helen, who, in Greek mythology, was the daughter of Zeus and Leda, wife of king Menelaus of Sparta and sister of Castor, Polydeuces and Clytemnestra. Her abduction by Paris brought about the Trojan War. Helen was described as having the face that launched a thousand ships. Helen or Helene is probably derived from the Greek word meaning "torch" or "corposant" or might be related to "selene" meaning "moon".
