A spellbinding and enchanting translation of Homer's epic, told in colloquial prose. The Iliad is a story of war, of death, of violence and of the complexities of human nature. This excellent translation from Ancient-Greece expert W.H.D. Rouse is as lively, harrowing, suspenseful and moving as Homer's original. Written in colloquial prose, Rouse never omits the thrill of adventure and the tragedies and victories of war. This is a great first translation to read, and an important addition to the literary canon.
