    One of the most extraordinary achievements in world literary history. Too good to be relegated to the dustbin of high-school required reading, the first of Homer's epic poems tells of the counsel of Nestor, Achilles' slaying of Hector, and the defeat of the Trojans by the Greeks. (Translated by Samuel Butler.)

    James M says: "Illiad at three or four times the price worth it?"
    "Not what I was looking for.."

    What would have made The Iliad better?

    If it was narrated by Derek Jacoby it would be better. When slicing and dicing on the battlefield are discussed, few can "say it like you mean it" better than he. My search (on Amazon) was for "Iliad Derek Jacoby" and this was the top choice audiobook. It had Derek Jacoby in the heading, but alas, he is nowhere to be heard on this Iliad. I just hope the CD I found actually has Derek: my cassette copy is worn-out.
