    " I haven't read this since I was a teenager and I was rather surprised by how violent it was. Battles were certainly quite descriptive. Still as someone who always enjoyed the Greek and Roman myths I really enjoyed reading it this time especially the capriciousness of the gods and how much of a jerk some of the heroes were. What I also found interesting is how it showed both sides of the war in a very even handed way showing the heroes on both sides. "

    " First of all, a sincere thanks to my more scholarly friends who recommended the Fagles translation. The text is relentless, violent, tender, cinematic, and in many ways, pure. It is extremely readable. And I approached this epic as an innocent, outside the realm of high school or college teacher biases, reliant only on Knox's excellent introduction and very clear explanatory notes. I was in good hands from the opening lines to the last. "
