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.

"The line-for-line rendering brings it very close to the original. The fast pace of the rhythm and the earthy energy of the vernacular manage to catch the excitement of the story itself. It comes through--relatively unfiltered--with a surprising impact."

--Harry Levin, Harvard University

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.

Introduction by Gregory Nagy; Translation by Robert Fitzgerald

Pope spent his formative years as a poet translating Homer, beginning with the Iliad, and in his translation he successfully found a style that answers the sublimity and grace of Homer. Steven Shankman provides scholarly critical apparatus for this Penguin English Poets edition, which is based on the 1743 edition that contains the poet's final revisions. Pope's Preface and the three indexes are also included. Most importantly, this edition makes available for the first time in paperback Pope's notes in their entirety, enabling us to observe one poetic genius illuminate the work of another.

Retells the events of the war between Greece and the city of Troy, focusing on Achilles' quarrel with Agamemnon.

This is a translation from the Greek of the epic poem on the Trojan War. Index.

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.
