Product description

Review

Wonderfully readable... Just the right blend of roughness and sophistication. (Ted Hughes) Robert Fagles is the best living translator of ancient Greek drama, lyric poetry, and epic into modern English. (Garry Wills, "The New Yorker") Mr. Fagles has been remarkably successful in finding a style that is of our time and yet timeless. (Richard Jenkyns, "The New York Times Book Review") --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

ANDREW LYNN teaches literature and writing at Barnard College. He is currently at work on a book about musical listening, silent reading, and the nineteenth-century novel.
