Editorial Reviews

Review

"The definitive English version of Homer for our time." -- The Common Review

From the Publisher

The Common Review
"The definitive English version of Homer for our time."

"Before Greece had tragedy, comedy, history, or even formal schools, there was Homer. Greeks, young and old, learned about the realities of life by hearing separate episodes from Homer sung at public festivals, and then remembering the stories through the power of song. What they remembered was what mattered most. These epics offered bluntly honest views of life. Think of that as you are listening to Stanley Lombardo. When he performs Homer, we feel what Bob Dylan calls the `inner substance' of great folk songs, their `pulse and vibration and rumbling force'. We grasp the power words had before books, movies and iPodsTM. Homer taught the ancient Greeks about life, death, love and war. Now in Lombardo's words and voice, Homer teaches us, too."
-- Tom Palaima University of Texas at Austin

"The quality of Lombardo's voice, which has an honest, unshowy American core, makes these performances sound fresh, intimate, and believable--very different from those theatricized oral interpretations that overplay the "epic" note." -- Richard P. Martin, Stanford University

"The excellence of Lombardo's performance can't be lauded too much. There's no other translator of the world's greatest poetry that is also a world-class reader." -- Douglass Parker, UT at Austin
