Robert Fagles' stunning modern-verse translation is now available in this Penguin Classics edition.


Homer was probably born around 725BC on the Coast of Asia Minor, now the coast of Turkey, but then really a part of Greece. Homer was the first Greek writer whose work survives. Both works attributed to Homer - The Iliad and The Odyssey - are over ten thousand lines long in the original. Robert Fagles is Arthur W. Marks 1919 Professor of Comparative Literature at Princeton University and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.


Wonderfully readable... Just the right blend of roughness and sophistication. (Ted Hughes)Robert Fagles is the best living translator of ancient Greek drama, lyric poetry, and epic into modern English. (Garry Wills, "The New Yorker")Mr. Fagles has been remarkably successful in finding a style that is of our time and yet timeless. (Richard Jenkyns, "The New York Times Book Review")
