"The finest translation of Homer ever made into the English language.12William ArrowsmithCertainly the best modern verse translation.12Gilbert HighetThis magnificent translation of Homer's epic poem . . . will appeal to admirers of Homer and the classics, and the multitude who always wanted to read the great Iliad but never got around to doing so.12The American Book CollectorPerhaps closer to Homer in every way than any other version made in English.12Peter Green, The New RepublicThe feat is decisive that it is reasonable to foresee a century or so in which nobody will try again to put the Iliad in English verse.12Robert FitzgeraldEach new generation is bound to produce new translations. [Lattimore] has done better with nobility, as well as with accuracy, than any other modern verse translator. In our age we do not often find a fine scholar who is also a genuine poet and who takes the greatest pains over the work of translation.12Hugh Lloyd-Jones, New York Review of BooksOver the long haul Lattimore's translation is more powerful because its effects are more subtle.12BooklistRichmond Lattimore is a fine translator of poetry because he has a poetic voice of his own, authentic and unmistakable and yet capable of remarkable range of modulation. His translations make the English reader aware of the poetry.12Moses Hadas, The New York Times
