For Free Ebook Author Homer ﬦ A Look Inside The Iliad Click Images to Enlarge First Seven Lines of the Iliad This reconstruction is based on what we know about the earliest Greek orthography The Walls of Troy The translator standing before the walls of the sixth city at Troy The Judgment of Paris On the right a youthful Paris sits on a stone in a rural location The sheep near his feet indicates that he is a shepherd Athenian red figure water jar, c 450 BC The Rage of Achilles The seated Agamemnon holds the scepter of authority and sits on a throne, his lower body wrapped in a robe Athena seizes Achilles from behind by the hair Roman mosaic from Pompeii, c First Century AD The Wedding of Zeus and Hera A half naked Zeus, sitting on a rock, clasps the wrist of Hera One of her breasts is exposed as Hera removes her head covering in a traditional gesture of submission c 540 BC Hephaistos Prepares Arms for Achilles The smithy god, bearded and wearing a felt cap, sits in an elaborately draped hall on a platform holding a cloth with which he is polishing the finished shield Between him and Thetis are the breastplate and the shinguards the surface of the fresco is damaged here From Pompeii, c AD 60.More than almost any other book, Homer s Iliad is meant to be spoken aloud, so it s a natural fit for audiobooks With his fluid translation of ancient Greek into the rhythms of contemporary conversation, Lombardo has rendered the story of the final stretch of the Trojan War and its plethora of jealous, vengeful gods and warriors feasting, battling and endlessly speechifying, boldly modern and recognizable than the remote marble tableaux conjured by most other versions Lombardo s expert reading makes the tale s convolutions easy to follow despite its length, and though he doesn t always reach for the extremes one might expect Achilles crashing rage sometimes sounds like mere irritation, and soldiers faced with certain death can seem less than petrified , his voice does become mesmerizing The interruptions between books, in which Sarandon reads synopses of the next, are jarring and unnecessary, since the synopses are printed in a handy booklet, along with a useful map and list of names and places Similarly, while the thrumming cello and percussion theme that opens and closes each book sets the tone nicely, the electronic chords that sometimes accompany dreams, deaths or appearances of the gods are rather off putting Such quibbles notwithstanding, Lombardo s Iliad both sings to 21st century ears and holds true to Homer s original vision the blind bard would be proud Lombardo has also translated and narrated Homer s Odyssey for Parmenides.Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
