The Iliad / The Odyssey

Product Description


Imported from USA

Gripping listeners and readers for more than 2,700 years, The Iliad is the story of the Trojan War and the rage of
Achilles. Combining the skills of a poet and scholar, Robert Fagles brings the energy of contemporary language to this
enduring heroic epic. If The Iliad is the world's greatest war story, then The Odyssey is literature's greatest
evocation of every man's journey through life. Here again, Fagles has performed the translator's task magnificently,
giving us an Odyssey to read aloud, to savor, and to treasure for its sheer lyrical mastery. Each volume contains a
superb introduction with textual and critical commentary by renowned classicist Bernard Knox.
