Translated by a noted Canadian scholar, this translation of the Iliad was created to provide an accurate text of the Iliad in a modern English poetic form. It was designed first and foremost for people who are reading Homer's Iliad for the first time. The book is accompanied by a complete glossary, maps and other study aids intended to ensure that one's initial venture into the world of the Iliad is a fruitful one. It is no accident that this tranlation has formed the basis for dramatic presentations of the Iliad in Philadelphia and Oxford and was chosen by Naxos Audiobooks for its full-length recording of the poem (available in August 2006).
