    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
    What made the experience of listening to The Iliad the most enjoyable?

    I was thrilled by the panoramic and muscular introduction that gave the listener a sense of where this story takes place in Greek mythology and history.


    Any additional comments?

    The translation was easy to follow, an English that seemed modern but that still gave the power and rhythm of heroic tales.
