Review:

"The best...translator of Greek poetry into English is Richmond

Lattimore...This is the best Odyssey in modern English."

-- -- Gilbert Highet

"[Lattimore's] Odyssey is his masterpiece."

-- -- Walter Kaufmann

"In this Odyssey Professor Lattimore has achieved his chef d'oeuvre as a translator...[A] dazzling and well-nigh flawless performance...Here is a master in perfect control of his medium...A landmark in the history of modern translation...It would be a crime to underestimate the miraculous and self-effacing artistry with which Professor Lattimore has reanimated Homer for this generation, and perhaps for other generations to come." -- Times Literary Supplement (London)

"Lattimore's translation of Homer's Odyssey is the most eloquent, persuasive, and imaginative I have seen. It reads as if the poem had originally been written in English." -- Paul Engle

"The best...translator of Greek poetry into English is Richmond Lattimore...This is the best Odyssey in modern English." -- Gilbert Highet

"[Lattimore's] Odyssey is his masterpiece." -- Walter Kaufmann

"[Lattimore's] complete Homer is indeed a splendid achievement, and I shall be very far from being alone in regarding it...as the best translation there is of a great, perhaps the greatest, poet." -- Rex Warner, New York Times Book Review
