Wonderful Translation of a Miraculous Book
on 6 August 2017
I've tried to read the Iliad a few times before, knowing it to be a classic, worthwhile and influential on modern culture - and given up. However, I was so relieved to discover this fluid, poet translation that, while appearing to lose nothing, makes it very readable. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who wants to discover where Western Culture originated.
