Robert Fagles

Robert Fagles was not a movie star, director, producer or screenwriter. He was merely a translator, but if it wasn’t for his lucid, readable adaptations of The Iliad and The Odyssey my understanding of classic literature would be much poorer. Why not read one today?

    He also translated Vergil’s Aneid.

    Loved his Iliad and need to read his Odyssey.

    I was raised on Lattimore Fitzgerald’s rather dull translations.

    And his Aeneid is an unstoppabble page-turner.
