A Homer through the Iliad still conveys to the modern reader
B Homer in his Iliad still conveys to a modern reader
C Homer's Iliad still conveys to the modern reader
D Homer's Iliad still conveys to one modern reader
E Homer through the Iliad still conveys to modern readers

This is a Misplaced Modifier problem. What was "written long after its oral composition in the Dark Ages of Greece"? Not Homer!
Eliminate A, B and E.
Beside being awkward, who is this "one" reader in D? From the context of the sentence, it is clear that the author means the average modern reader, not one particular reader.
So D is incorrect which only leaves C as the correct answer.
