    The power and the beauty of The Iliad resound again across 2,700 years in Stephen Mitchell's exciting new translation, as if the lifeblood of its heroes Achilles and Patroclus, Hector and Priam flowed in every word. And we are there with them amid the horror and ecstasy of war, carried along by a poetry that lifts even the most devastating human events into the realm of the beautiful.

    Darwin8u says: "Mitchell's Translation is Brilliant Poetry"
    "this is a tough one to get into."

    What disappointed you about The Iliad?

    maybe I was distracted, but I've listened to the first couple of chapters and I don't know what the heck is going on or what it's about


    Would you ever listen to anything by Homer and Stephen Mitchell (translator) again?

    Yes, I will give this a second chance and re-listen from the start.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I don't know if it's the narrator or that the book is boring.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not yet.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to a lot of books while driving but if I am lost after the first 1/2 hour or so it's really tough to keep going or start over.
