The stirring story of the Trojan War and the rage of Achilles has gripped listeners and readers for 2,700 years. This timeless poem still vividly conveys the horror and heroism of men and gods wrestling with towering emotions and battling amid devastation and destruction, as it moves inexorably to its terrifying, tragic conclusion.

Combining the skills of a poet and scholar, Robert Fagles brings the energy of contemporary language to this enduring heroic epic. He maintains the drive and metric music of Homer's poetry, and evokes the impact and nuance of The Iliad's mesmerizing repeated phrases in what Denis Donoghue describes as a "superb achievement" and Peter Levi calls an "astonishing performance".
