Meet the Author

The ancient Greek poet Homer established the gold standard for heroic quests and sweeping journeys with his pair of classic epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey. Crowded with characters, both human and non-human, and bursting with action, the epic tales detail the fabled Trojan War and the adventures of Odysseus as he struggles to return home. Homer’s epics have inspired countless books and works of art throughout their long history.

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.

Ordered the book online for a class. Half of Book 15 and all of Book 16 were missing. Went to the store nearby and could not get it replaced during my class. It was hard to write my essay without these crucial Books. Rented an online version to complete my essay.
