Review

A great poem cannot be fully translated unless by a poet almost as great as its original author W.H.D. Rouse retells the story in fast, modern, colloquial prose. It is the first version I have ever seen which drives on as rapidly as the original and therefore it makes an excellent introduction to Homer. This is the translation to read first, if you have never read The Iliad. The New York Times Book Review"
