The Iliad (Excerpts)

Robert Fagles

Listen to Fagles’ Homer lecture that is filled with excerpts from the Iliad (in mp3, in .rm for folks on dialup access)

The lecture is approximately an hour long. Fagles is an excellent storyteller who sprinkles the lecture with readings from his translation, the original Greek text and some very funny comments. Do give it a listen.

His translation at Amazon.com.

    The IIiad impressed me the most,after I purchased a small hardcover version in 1995 and read it right through.That version was translated by Alexander Pope.
    His series of rhyming couples are the best.

    note: Here is a rhyming couple of mine which possess ‘ST’ combing form sounds

    Most of the Stallions are lost
    In the time streams that never stop.
