Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. "It is hard to overstate the attractions of this translation. In a rhythm sinewy and flexible, with languagethat is precise, lyrical and fresh, Lombardo's Iliad pulses with all the power and luminosity of the Greek.He shows extraordinary sensitivity to the images and aural effects of the ancient poem. There arebrilliant touches on every page. . . .Altogether this is as good as Homer gets in English."Richard P. Martin, Princeton University Gripping.Lombardo's achievement is all the more striking when you consider the difficulties of his task.[He] manages to be respectful of Homer's dire spirit while providing on nearly every page some wonderfully fresh refashioning of his Greek. The result is a vivid and disarmingly hardbitten reworking of a great classic. --Daniel Mendelsohn, The New York Times Book Review Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
