    The Iliad is one of the most enduring creations of Western Civilization and was originally written to be recited or chanted to the accompaniment of various instruments. Properly performed, this work today is just as meaningful, just as powerful and just as entertaining as it was in the ninth century B.C.,and it casts its spell upon modern listeners with the same raw intensity as it did upon the people of ancient times.

    What did you like best about The Iliad? What did you like least?

    Love the story. This was my second trip through an audio Iliad. However! Charlton Griffin's voice and tone simply got old after book five.


    What didn’t you like about Charlton Griffin’s performance?

    Why? Yes, he uses a lot of variation in his speaking, but after a while it becomes sing-song instead of exciting. Mr. Griffin has chosen to give a dramatic reading, great, but his voice merely rises and falls instead portraying passion and grief. Same thing with his reading of Caesar's Commentaries. Here I was holding on, but when he got Hector & Andromache's "voices" mixed up in what should be one of the best scenes, I lost it.
