Gilbert Highet "This magnificent translation of Homer's epic poem . . . will appeal to admirers of Homer and the classics, and the multitude who always wanted to read the great "Iliad" but never got around to doing so."

His translations make the English reader aware of the poetry." Moses Hadas, "The New York Times
