Summary: A new modern translation of The Iliad that is fast-moving, direct, emphasizes the action of the story, and is especially helpful for those first encountering this classic work. In this widely acclaimed verse translation of Homer's great epic, Robert Fagles combines the skills of poet and scholar. He brings the energy of contemporary language to this enduring heroic work, but maintains the drive and metric music of Homer's poetry and evokes the impact and
nuance of Homer's mesmerizing repeated phrases. This translation of The Iliad equals Fitzgerald's earlier Odyssey in power and imagination. It recreates the original action as conceived by Homer, using fresh and flexible blank verse that is both lyrical and dramatic.
