Summary: ''It is hard to overstate the attractions of this translation. In a rhythm sinewy and flexible, with languagethat is precise, lyrical and fresh, Lombardo's Iliad pulses with all the power and luminosity of the Greek.He shows extraordinary sensitivity to the images and aural effects of the ancient poem. There arebrilliant touches on every page. . . .Altogether this is as good as Homer gets in English.''--Richard P. Martin, Princeton UniversityEdition/Copyright: 97
