"A brilliant accomplishment. It captures the fierce energy; rhythms, and powerful narrative of Homer's Greek in vivid and compelling English."

—Elaine Pagels, author of The Gnostic Gospels

 

"Mitchesll's Iliad is slimmer and leaner than anything we have seen before. His strong five-beat rhythm is arguably the best yet in English.

—Daniel Mendelsohn, The New Yorker

 

"A daring new version of the epic poem."

The Wall Street Journal

 

"The verse is well-forged and clean-limbed, and achieves a powerful simplicity. Mitchell has re-energized the Iliad for a new generation."

The Sunday Telegraph (London)
