I have loved the poem for a long time and I am always impressed by Clive James' use of language, so this was a 'no brainer' for me and it has lived up to my expectations. It is epic in all senses so I dip into sections rather than read extensively and the translation is always fascinating and, often, has the 'wow' factor too. Highly recommended for the 'serious' reader of poetry.
