"A fine translation, accurate and energetic." -- Thomas L. Cooksey Library Journal "Taken as a whole this is the best line-for-line translation of the poem I know." -- Colin Burrow London Review of Books "By "preserving the strangeness" of Homer, [Peter Green] gives the reader the fullest possible access to the ancient mind, into Homer's distant universe of wine-faced seas, god-like men and bronze skies." -- Kate Havard The Washington Free Beacon "Translating Homer into English is almost a genre of its own... Is there still a gap in the market? Peter Green's new translation shows that there is... his particular merit lies in achieving a clarity and fluidity that carries the reader (or indeed the declaimer) forward... a notable achievement." -- Richard Jenkyns TLS "Readers will learn a great deal about the Iliad from Green's detailed introduction and from comprehensive synopses of each book. A list summarizing the roles of main characters (Achilles to Zeus) and an index of names will benefit new readers as well as pros... Summing Up: Highly recommended." -- R. Cormier CHOICE "Green shows the wonderful things that can happen when Homeric rhythms are combined with a free-flowing and naturalistic English." ARGO
