Annoying ragged page edges - get the other edition
on 6 June 2017
This is a fantastic translation. Unmissable! But don't buy this edition - the edges of the paper are intentionally left ragged, and the paper is very poor quality. Presumably this is meant to make it feel ancient. This is very annoying as it makes it hard to turn the pages, and it does a great disservice to the extraordinary quality of the translation. Get the other, seriously published, Penguin edition. Unfortunately Fagles' other translations of the Iliad and the Aeneid seem to only be available like this.
