A new translation of Homer's epic follows Merrill's successful earlier version of the Odyssey in capturing the feel of the original Greek. Rodney Merrill's translation of Homer's ""Iliad"" offers a form of English poetry particularly relevant to the epic, producing a strong musical setting that brings many elements of the narrative truly to life. Most notable are the many battle scenes, in which Homer's strong dactylic hexameters make credible the 'war-lust' in the deeds of the combatants.
