The Iliad’s Cover

6 04 2007

Homer’s Iliad remains one of my favorite books.  In my experience if people didn’t like it, it was because they found that they had a hard time caring.  Perhaps the 3000 years that have gone by since it was written present too great of a literary hurdle for some modern readers. 

In any case, here’s a scan of the cover of an actual, published translation – that found a clever way to bridge that gap.
