A new attempt to get to the bottom of the organisation and construction of the Iliad, which proposes that the poem is structured in such a way as to make reading it profitable, as opposed to the standard conception of its being an oral experience. Heiden notes that Zeus provides a unifying plot driver, but that the division of the work into books also creates a structure to the work as it is read, which flags up major events, and delineates sub-plots.
