This is a very good hardcover, NO dust jacket as originally issued by publisher. 1990 Viking Publishing. This copy is very clean inside. The pages are crisp, clean and free of markings. The binding is tight and straight. Black cloth hardcover boards with gold title lettering spine, are very good and clean. Only a hint of shelf wear to hardcover from display.

This timeless poem from Homer dates back to the 9th century. it portrays the horror and heroism of men and Gods wrestling with emotions and battling devastation and destruction. The intro by Bernard Knox is superb, and notes that although the violence of The Iliad is forbidding and incessant, it coexists with civilized life and yearning for peace.
Translated by Robert Fagles, he brings contemporary language to this enduring epic. He captures the sweep of the original with all the passion and landscape while lacking none of the subtleties.
