Iliad (Pope Translation)

Iliad (Pope Translation)

0

Homer’s Iliad is the first great work of Western literature. Composed in twenty-four books of Greek hexameter
poetry, it portrays the events of the last year of the Trojan War. Its translation into rhyming couplets by
Alexander Pope is considered by some the greatest act of translation in English. Its power sweeps the reader
along through an epic tale that begins with the wrath of Achilles and ends with the burial of Hector, breaker
of horses. (Introduction by Steve Perkins)
