A new translation of Homer's epic follows Merrill's successful earlier version of the Odyssey in capturing the feel of the original Greek. Rodney Merrill's translation of Homer's ""Iliad"" offers a form of English poetry particularly relevant to the epic, producing a strong musical setting that brings many elements of the narrative truly to life. Most notable are the many battle scenes, in which Homer's strong dactylic hexameters make credible the 'war-lust' in the deeds of the combatants.

"Other competent translations of Homer exist, but none accomplish what Merrill aims for: to convey to the reader-listener in translation the meaning and the sounds of Homer, coming as close as possible to the poetry of the original. Merrill accomplishes this virtuosic achievement by translating Homer's Greek into English hexameters, a process requiring not only a full understanding of the original Greek, but also an unusual mostery of the sounds, rhythms, and nuances of English." - Stephen G.
