A poetic retelling of Homer which made me realise for the first time what an extraordinary story teller the Greek was. I've read lots of translations of the Illiad. Now, having read Logue's translation, I finally "get it". Logue is not exactly linear in his translation work; I'm hoping he'll fill in the gaps and publish as a single volume soon.

More of Logue's retelling of Homer's The Iliad. Just as brilliant as War Music. The focus of this piece is carnage... mass foot warfare amongst groups of men... random violence in the midst of battle. The verse is compelling, the imagery lasting. In short, breathing life back into an epic.
