Fagles presents his universally acclaimed modern verse translation of the world's greatest war story in an exquisite edition with French flaps, designed as a companion volume to "The Odyssey".
This timeless poem-more than 2,700 year old-still vividly conveys the horror and heroism of men and gods wrestling with towering emotions and battling amid devastation and destruction as it moves inexorably to its wrenching, tragic conclusion. Readers of this epic poem will be gripped by the finely tuned translation and enlightening introduction.
Translated by Robert Fagles
