It is always a real pleasure to read a translation which adheres to one basic, important principle, to reflect faithfully what the poet says. Professor Cook's translation does just that.... This is a literal translation, following the original line for line. These lines scan easily and move rapidly, thus reproducing one of the special delights of Homeric style.... Recommended highly. --Francis D. Lazenby, Classics Department, University of Notre Dame
