    Perhaps the greatest poem of the Western world, The Iliad tells the story of 50 critical days towards the end of the Trojan war. Achilles has quarrelled with Agamemnon and sulks in his tent, while Hector brings his Trojans to the brink of victory; but fate will have the last word.

    Tad Davis says: "Excellent version"
    "Easy on the ears, food for the mind"
    Overall

    I waited for some time before finally braving The Iliad. I was frankly intimidated, assuming (from experience reading other epic poetry) that a good translation would be extremely difficult to listen to and comprehend. I was so wrong!

    This translation and this narrator make Homer come alive.
