Product Description

In every century since the Renaissance, English speakers have felt compelled to possess a translation written especially for their own time of this great epic poem, the earliest and most central literary text of Western culture. That need has now been most thoroughly met in our century by the distinguished poet and classicist Robert Fitzgerald, whose version does justice in every way to the fluent and gravity of the Homeric original.
