Renowned Homer scholar Barry B. Powell has already given the world powerful new translations of the Iliad and the Odyssey. Now his Homer's Iliad and Odyssey: The Essential Books brings together his translations of the most important books and passages from these two great poems in one handy volume. Accessible, poetic, and accurate, Barry Powell's translations are an excellent fit for today's students. With swift, transparent language that rings both ancient and modern, Powell exposes students to all of the rage, pleasure, pathos, cunning, and humor that are Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. Both the translations and the introductions are informed by the best recent scholarship.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Critical acclaim for Barry B. Powell: "Powell's style is individual and self-assured, and his lines cry out to be read aloud. * Denis Feeney, Princeton University *
Barry Powell's clever translation is simple and energetic: sometimes coarse, sometimes flowing, it is always poetically engaged. * Margalit Finkleberg, University of Tel Aviv *
Powell's muscular verses are faithful to the original Greek but bring the characters to life. This is a page-turner, bound to become the new standard translation. * Ian Morris, Stanford University *
