Description - Iliad by Homer
"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
