Dating to the ninth century BC, Homer’s timeless poem still vividly conveys the horror and heroism of men and gods wrestling with towering emotions and battling amidst devastation and destruction, as it moves inexorably to the wrenching, tragic conclusion of the Trojan War. Renowned classicist Bernard Knox observes in his superb Introduction that although the violence of the Iliad is grim and relentless, it coexists with both images of civilized life and a poignant yearning for peace.

I downloaded this audiobook to help me with course reading for one of my university classes. My professors were very picky about the exact translation and version of the book that I had to purchase and so I sought out the same translation and version in my audiobook.
Unfortunately, I was not able to use this to help me work through the book because it did not follow the text of its corresponding edition. I am very disappointed.
