The Iliad : A New Translation by Peter Green, Paperback / softback Book

The Iliad : A New Translation by Peter Green Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

One of the oldest extant works of Western literature, the Iliad is a timeless epic poem of great warriors trapped between their own heroic pride and the arbitrary, often vicious decisions of fate and the gods.

Renowned scholar and acclaimed translator Peter Green captures the Iliad in all its surging thunder for a new generation of readers.

Featuring an enticingly personal introduction, a detailed synopsis of each book, a wide-ranging glossary, and explanatory notes for the few puzzling in-text items, the book also includes a select bibliography for those who want to learn more about Homer and the Greek epic.

This landmark translation - specifically designed, like the oral original, to be read aloud - will soon be required reading for every student of Greek antiquity, and the great traditions of history and literature to which it gave birth.
