The Iliad: The Fitzgerald Translation
Publisher: Farrar Straus GirouxFormat: Paperback
Anger be now your song, immortal one,Akhilleus' anger, doomed and ruinous,that caused the Akhaians loss on bitter lossand crowded brave souls into the undergloom,leaving so many dead men-carrionfor dogs and birds; and the will of Zeus was done.-Lines 1-6 Since it was first published more than twenty-five years ago, Robert Fitzgerald's prizewinning translation of Homer's battle epic has become a classic in its own right: a standard against which all other versions of “The Iliad” are compared. Fitzgerald's work is accessible, ironic, faithful, written in a swift vernacular blank verse that “makes Homer live as never before” (“Library Journal”).This edition includes a new foreword by Andrew Ford.
