    Story

    Combining the skills of a poet and scholar, Robert Fagles, winner of the PEN/Ralph Manheim Medal for Translation and a 1996 Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, brings the energy of contemporary language to this enduring heroic epic. He maintains the drive and metric music of Homer’s poetry, and evokes the impact and nuance of the Iliad’s mesmerizing repeated phrases in what Peter Levi calls “an astonishing performance."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Iliad to be better than the print version?

    No, but the story tellers did a magnificent job in their telling of the timeless classic. This book gives you everything suspence, drama, hardship, the tellers helped bring it to life in a way just reading it can't!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The rage of Achilles!


    What about Derek Jacobi and Maria Tucci ’s performance did you like?

    They kept their telling in line with the original, but added their own flare to it!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The part when Achilles is talking with King Priam, and Priam is asking Achilles for his son body back, (Hector)!


    Any additional comments?

    Great book! Everybody should read it, or at the very least listen to it! Great job!
