What the community says about The Iliad and the Odyssey

    "The Iliad and the Odyssey is an awesome story, it really doesn't get any better than Homer. The classic story is as good today as it was 2,700 years ago. I think many of the books and movies today could benefit from the formula Homer used and I wish more did."

    "The best Trojan War book would have to be The Iliad and the Odyssey. This book also includes poems about notable moments in Greek history. This book includes so much information about Greeks history around the Trojan War. It was hard putting this book down. This is one book you will read again and again. You will not be disappointed with this book which was printed by Shandonpress."

    "The Iliad and the Odyssey seems pretty daunting in the beginning. Once you get to know the characters, the story flows nicely."

    "The Iliad should be read by everyone in my opinion. It's for sure one of my favorite books. It's educational, intelligent, poetic, and imaginative. The only bad part about this book is that it eventually ends. "

    "I think this is the perfect solution. When I think ancient Greece these are the exact 2 books I think about. "

    "The Iliad and the Odyssey are two of the greatest poems in the history of literature. They are presented here in a single tome. These are books that I first read in high school, but I go back to them every few years as I find new truths each time I read them."

    "I just completed a Continuing Studies course on The Odyssey at Stanford University conducted by the venerable Dr. Marsh McCall who actually made it a fun and fascinating class. During the class, we read from two of the most modern translations, this one from Lattmore as well as Robert Fagles' more recent translation. I found myself reading with both books open to the same chapter, comparing the language and meaning. Lattimore chose to retain the original verse count of the Ancient Greek text, which tended to cause some rather odd and strained English constructions at times. Though the meaning was similar and neither translation actually altered the overall content, It was surprising to realize how a subtle difference in word choice could alter the perception of a scene or dialogue. There are very few people in the world who can read Ancient Greek and even fewer who could translate such a sweeping epic poem, and Lattimore's work is surely an impressive accomplishment,"
