The Iliad by Homer

Translated by Ian Johnston

Composed between 800 and 700 B.C., the Iliad tells the story of the Achilles and other warriors in the tenth year of the Trojan War. The poem tells of the famous quarrel between Agamemnon and Achilles and all that resulted, the extraordinary battlefield accomplishments of the world's most famous warriors and the final encounter between the Trojan Prince Hector and Achilles.

The Iliad is the oldest and finest epic poem in Western culture. This book contains a new translation by Canadian Professor Ian Johnston. It has been translated from the original Greek into a modern English poetic form and was designed first and foremost for those who will be reading Homer's Iliad for the first time.


Here, now, exists a new translation, faithful to Homer's eloquent poetic rendition yet fully understandable by the general reader. Richer Resources Publications is proud to present this new translation by Ian Johnston. For anyone who has ever wanted to read these classics, but were backed off by older English translations, this translation and its companion text, the Odyssey, serve as an introduction to two of the greatest classics of all time.


The translation remains very close to Homerís text, yet the modern English idiom is extremely fluent and clear, with a rhythm well suited to the speaking voice. Itís no accident that this translation has formed the basis for dramatic presentations of the Iliad in Philadelphia and Oxford and was chosen by Naxos Audiobooks for its full-length recording of the poem (available in August 2006).

A recording of the complete translation of this book is also available from Naxos Books. The Iliad, read by Anton Lesser (ISBN 9-626344-28-8) is available through the Naxos internet web site at:
