Over the years I have tried every book and technique to gain some mastery over Homeric Greek. At last appears a solution:
(1) The Original Greek Line
(2) A dictionary definition of each word
(3) A translation of the line
This certainly does seem to be working for me. The only other accompanients would be: The Loeb, later translation; Draper's Book 1 of the Iliad; Cunliffe's Lexicon; Lombardo's Iliad spoken in the Greek.
The reasons for the 4 and not 5 stars are:
(1) Printing out the text from the CD appears to small
(2) A number of the word definitions are incorrect.
Take that glorious Greek line 34 of Iliad Book one "He went forth in silence along the shore of the loud-roaring sea," (so well annotated
by Draper). The translation of shore(thina) reads 'heap'.
However, I am amazed at the effort that must have gone into the creating of this CD. I'm sure it will prove a worthwhile addition to the reference library of anyone wishing to study Homer's mighty and musical lines in the original.

I received the product a few days ago and was crushed when the text was too small to print and use. I'm 68 and need bigger text printouts. The only remedy I see at the moment is to copy to a word, increase font size, arrange words vertically and use double columns. (Lots of work). Double columns are hard to show here.

Verified Purchase
Mr Jackson has done a great job with this parsed version of Homer's Iliad. The CD-ROM version covering all 24 books of the Iliad is the one to buy and not the single books marketed for Amazon's Kindle. These do not display properly: vocabulary for each line is listed (rather than underneath each word on the line) and flows over the screen page. The Kindle display cannot be changed for these files. This, the original CD-ROM version in contrast, is a single pdf file of 11 MG. It is easy to enlarge or decrease the display and is brilliantly clear.

It has to be said, however, that this version, convenient as it undoubtedly is, is not as good as the Perseus text which can be downloaded for free along with all the other Perseus texts (all 1116 of them!) from the LOGOS BIBLE SOFTWARE site. If you buy the abridged Liddle & Scott Lexicon for approx. $35 from LOGOS, you will have a very convenient way of viewing the Greek text of the Iliad and the Odyssey with lexical help, i.e. dictionary meaning and parsing clearly and instantly displayed on the same page. It is now much the best way of reading the text.
