1.0 out of 5 stars translation??? 16 Nov. 2010
By cerrig
Format:Kindle Edition
No idea if this is one or five stars - doesn't tell you who the translation is by! Don't buy a classical text like this unless you know who tralsated it. Fagles very different from Pope very different from EV Rieu, etc etc. This is semi-literate of AMAZON.
