Review: The Iliad

The IliadThe Iliad (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)
by Homer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Iliad / 0-14-027536-3

I'm not going to lie and say that I pull this out every other weekend for light reading, but if you're going to have a copy of the Illiad on hand, this is a good one to add to the library. The translation is a good one, and is very poetic yet easy to read. The verse form has been maintained and reminds the reader that this was originally a verse, not a prose narrative. And the binding is tight and attractive, with thick sturdy pages. I recommend this version, if you're considering buying The Illiad.
