The Iliad

Barry B. Powell and Homer

  • Uses well-modulated verse and accurate English that is contemporary but never without dignity
  • Introduction by Powell sets the poem in its philological, mythological, and historical context.
  • Only translation to provide on-page notes, facilitating the reader's engagement with the poem
  • Embedded illustrations (2-3 per chapter) provide Greek and Roman visual sources for key passages in each of the poem's 24 books. Each illustration is accompanied by an extensive caption.
  • 8 maps-the most of any available translation-provide geographic context for the poem's many place names
