Product description

Review

'Brilliant in its own right . . . has 15 or so perfect touches that show Oswald to be a considerable poet.' -- Craig Raine, Guardian Books of the Year >> '[One of] the two most impressive books of poetry I've read this year ... this brilliantly animates [The Iliad] as it creates a poignant new lament for war dead.' -- Andrew Motion, TLS >> 'A wonderful book, the most profound reimagining of Homer since Derek Walcott's Omeros.' -- Peter Thonemann, TLS >> 'Takes off from The Iliad to find a brilliance and resonance all of its own.' -- Anne Chisholm, Sunday Telegraph Books of the Year >> 'An uncompromising rewriting of The Iliad, stripping away its epic narrative to foreground its fallen foot-soldiers.' -- Josephine Balmer, The Times Books of the Year>> 'An elegy of quite extraordinary power.' Andrew Motion, The Times Books of the Year >> 'A deft and plangent reworking of Homer's Iliad.' --Sarah Crown, Guardian Books of the Year

Book Description

A glitteringly original new poem which is also a version of Homer's Iliad, from prize-winning poet Alice Oswald
