Read full description of the books Ilium: La rivolta:



Thomas Hockenberry era un professore universitario. Adesso si trova fuori dal tempo, costretto a osservare e studiare la guerra di Troia in diretta per conto degli dei. Dèi molto diversi da quelli che conosciamo, che utilizzano una tecnologia che sembra provenire dal lontano futuro, che guariscono dalle ferite in vasche di clonazione, e che distruggono chiunque si opponga a loro. Come Hockenberry, una volta loro schiavo, adesso un ribelle vuol fare cessare la guerra e far rivoltare Greci e Troiani contro gli esseri onnipotenti che li trattano come burattini. Per fare questo dovrà cambiare la storia come l'ha imparata sui testi scolastici e convincere Achille, ben noto per il suo cattivo carattere, a combattere dalla sua parte. Intanto, sulla Terra del lontano futuro, un gruppo di umani tra i pochi sopravvissuti in un'era di tecnologia e ignoranza cerca di raggiungere il luogo dove tutti gli enigmi sul loro tempo saranno spiegati. Lo "spedale", un anello orbitale dove vengono trasportati i corpi dei defunti per essere riportati in vita. A fare loro da guida un uomo che racconta di essere Odisseo, detto anche Ulisse, in qualche modo arrivato dal lontano passato. E una donna che sembra in grado di vivere per sempre e che ricorda come era il mondo prima che tutti fossero collegati alla rete. Una donna che è l'ultima sulla faccia della terra a saper ancora leggere e scrivere.
Prosegue la saga di "Ilium", il capolavoro della fantascienza moderna che mescola avventura, immaginazione sfrenata e una rilettura, affascinante quanto dissacrante, del classico dei classici: l'"Iliade"

Read information about the author

Ebook Ilium: La rivolta read Online! Dan Simmons grew up in various cities and small towns in the Midwest, including Brimfield, Illinois, which was the source of his fictional "Elm Haven" in 1991's SUMMER OF NIGHT and 2002's A WINTER HAUNTING. Dan received a B.A. in English from Wabash College in 1970, winning a national Phi Beta Kappa Award during his senior year for excellence in fiction, journalism and art.

Dan received his Masters in Education from Washington University in St. Louis in 1971. He then worked in elementary education for 18 years—2 years in Missouri, 2 years in Buffalo, New York—one year as a specially trained BOCES "resource teacher" and another as a sixth-grade teacher—and 14 years in Colorado.

ABOUT DAN
Biographic Sketch

His last four years in teaching were spent creating, coordinating, and teaching in APEX, an extensive gifted/talented program serving 19 elementary schools and some 15,000 potential students. During his years of teaching, he won awards from the Colorado Education Association and was a finalist for the Colorado Teacher of the Year. He also worked as a national language-arts consultant, sharing his own "Writing Well" curriculum which he had created for his own classroom. Eleven and twelve-year-old students in Simmons' regular 6th-grade class averaged junior-year in high school writing ability according to annual standardized and holistic writing assessments. Whenever someone says "writing can't be taught," Dan begs to differ and has the track record to prove it. Since becoming a full-time writer, Dan likes to visit college writing classes, has taught in New Hampshire's Odyssey writing program for adults, and is considering hosting his own Windwalker Writers' Workshop.

Dan's first published story appeared on Feb. 15, 1982, the day his daughter, Jane Kathryn, was born. He's always attributed that coincidence to "helping in keeping things in perspective when it comes to the relative importance of writing and life."

Dan has been a full-time writer since 1987 and lives along the Front Range of Colorado—in the same town where he taught for 14 years—with his wife, Karen, his daughter, Jane, (when she's home from Hamilton College) and their Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Fergie. He does much of his writing at Windwalker—their mountain property and cabin at 8,400 feet of altitude at the base of the Continental Divide, just south of Rocky Mountain National Park. An 8-ft.-tall sculpture of the Shrike—a thorned and frightening character from the four Hyperion/Endymion novels—was sculpted by an ex-student and friend, Clee Richeson, and the sculpture now stands guard near the isolated cabin.
