I am not a fan of epic poetry. When I was assigned the Odyssey in high school, I found it a chore to get through. After much pressure from some friends, I finally gave in and decided to read the Iliad. My friends recommended that I read Lattimore's translation, and I am very glad they did. I found this edition to be very straight forward and readable. It allowed the moving passages of the Iliad to reach me effortlessly. I highly recommend this edition to anyone who has no prior experience with ancient epics, or who like myself had a bad experience in the past. I enjoyed this text so much that I actually am going to try reading Lattimore's translation of the Odyssey.
