Description - The Iliad by Homer
Gripping...Lombardo's achievement is all the more striking when you consider the difficulties of his task...[He] manages to be respectful of Homer's dire spirit while providing on nearly every page some wonderfully fresh refashioning of his Greek. The result is a vivid and disarmingly hardbitten reworking of a great classic. --Daniel Mendelsohn, The New York Times Book Review
