War Music: An Account of Books 1-4 and 16-19 of Homer's Iliad
2ndPublisher: University of Chicago PressFormat: Paperback
In his brilliant rendering of eight books of Homer's “Iliad,” Logue here retells some of the most evocative episodes of the war classic, including the death of Patroclus and Achilles's fateful return to battle, that sealed the doom of Troy. Compulsively readable, Logue's poetry flies off the page, and his compelling descriptions of the horrors of war have a surreal, dreamlike quality that has been compared to the films of Kurosawa. Retaining the great poem's story line but rewriting every incident, Logue brings the Trojan War to life for modern audiences.
