    Description

    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.

    Excellent version

    The translation by Ian Johnston is immediately accessible without sacrificing the epic forms -- rhythmic metaphors, ritualized repetition, heroic epithets. The reading by Anton Lesser is crisp, clear, and fast-moving. Great job. This being a Naxos audiobook, the only thing missing is music; but once I realized it wasn't there, I didn't miss it: I kept getting caught up in the sweep of the narrative.

    Easy on the ears, food for the mind

    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.

    Great way to enjoy a difficult classic

    As a reader who reads for the story itself (vs. how the story is told), the Iliad would have been a difficult read for me given its age and "flowery language", but this format and Lesser's narration make it a very enjoyable experience. If you want to enjoy this classic, this is the way to do it.
