This is a fresh easy to read version modern in its language but capturing anchient themes of Homer.
For high schoolers, though, I would recommend reading one of the other translators first, as the first time one reads Homer, it should be for the story.
I have read several versions of the Iliad (both poetic and prose) and this version translated by Robert Fagles is the best I've read.
The book was sent to me with a giant wine/juice stain on the back cover. Very unprofessional.Published 1 day ago by cash

This particular translation is excellent. Read more
Great introduction and glossary. Excellent translation although I do miss "rosy fingered dawn."Published 7 days ago by Mary Vincent Einert

My husband enjoyed reading this book after our return from Troy. For the 21st century reader, however, it's very long and repetitive. He didn't read the entire saga.Published 27 days ago by Jae Brown
