FROM THE PUBLISHER - Known the world over as a great epic and a literary classic, the ILIAD was composed primarily to amuse and is filled with great comedy and biting satire. In THE ANGER OF ACHILLES, Robert Graves has translated the narrative into sharp, clear prose, interpolating the songs into lyric poetry, and has caught all the rich humor lacking in the usual solemn, pedantic versions of the ILIAD. The story of three days of the Trojan War - with its great battles between the Greeks and Trojans and between immortal gods with human passions and motives - is engrossing in itself. In the hands of a man who is as accomplished a novelist as he is a poet, it makes superb reading. Ronald Searle, the famous Punch cartoonist, has created an entirely new artistic technique which points up the satire accented in this fresh, new rendering of Homerís epic. Robert Gravesí translation may shock some scholars, but in its remarkable combination of narrative and song, THE ANGER OF ACHILLES stands as a landmark of translation of a great classic.
