Summary
In The Fall of Troy, Quintus Smyrnaeus (Fourth century CE?) seeks to continue in Homer's style the tale of Troy from the point at which the Iliad closes. Quintus's fourteen-book epic poem includes the death of Achilles and the making of the Wooden Horse. It ends with the great storm that by the wrath of heaven shattered the departing Achaean fleet.
