"It is hard to overstate the attractions of this translation. In a rhythm sinewy and flexible, with language that 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 are brilliant touches on every page. . . .Altogether this is as good as Homer gets in English." -Richard P. Martin, Princeton University

"It is hard to overstate the attractions of this translation. In a rhythm sinewy and flexible, with language that 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 are brilliant touches on every page... The narrator's voice sounds contemporary without losing authority or resonance, while his heroes from an archaic time speak a racy, hard-bitten idiom completely recognisable to our own Iron Age. Altogether this is as good as Homer gets in English." -- Richard P Martin, Professor of Classics, Princeton University.
