YMMV: The Trojan Cycle

The Cypria

  • Fanon Discontinuity: A particularly harsh example; the books aside from The Iliad and The Odyssey were so disliked that they don't even exist anymore.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Zeus basically sets off the whole Trojan War in order to trim down the world's population. He's clearly gotten lazy over the last three thousand-odd years, seeing as the human population has grown much, much, much, much larger than it was either before or after the conflict.
  • Prequelitis: Aristotle criticised the work as lacking focus, as it was more of a series of events than a unified story. The Iliad and The Odyssey are considered superior works.
