数百年来,特洛伊战争的故事一直让人们为之着迷,并由此诞生了无数的学术文章和书籍、大量的考古发掘、史诗电影、电视纪录片、话剧、美术和雕塑作品、纪念品和收藏品。在美国,下辖城市或乡镇名叫“特洛伊”的州就有33个;除南加州大学外,还有10所四年制院校的运动队取名为“特洛伊人”。尤其吸引人的是“特洛伊木马”的故事,这个大胆的计划令特洛伊战争走向终结,“特洛伊木马”一词也进入了现代语汇:它催生了谚语“小心带着礼物的希腊人”,企图制造混乱的黑客们还将“特洛伊木马”病毒当作一种象征植入了计算机系统。

The story of the Trojan War has fascinated humans for centuries and has given rise to countless scholarly articles and books, extensive archaeological excavations, epic movies, television documentaries, stage plays, art and sculpture, souvenirs and collectibles. In the United States there are thirty-three states with cities or towns named Troy and ten four-year colleges and universities, besides the University of Southern California, whose sports teams are called the Trojans. Particularly captivating is the account of the Trojan Horse, the daring plan that brought the Trojan War to an end and that has also entered modern parlance by giving rise to the saying “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts” and serving as a metaphor for hackers intent on wreaking havoc by inserting a “Trojan horse” into computer systems.

特洛伊战争能够如此家喻户晓,或许要归功于世界各地的电影、书籍和戏剧,但是这场令人如此迷恋的战争真的发生过吗?这场声名狼藉的战争因荷马的记叙而名垂千古,但也存在很多疑问,本期这篇摘自《牛津通识读本:特洛伊战争》的片段或许可以回答其中的一些问题。
