From the Publisher With an Introduction and Notes by Adam Roberts, Royal Holloway, University of LondonThe product of more than a decade''s continuous work (1598-1611), Chapman''s translation of Homer''s great poem of war is a magnificent testimony to the power of The Iliad. In muscular, onward-rolling verse Chapman retells the story of Achilles, the great warrior, and his terrible wrath before the walls of besieged Troy, and the destruction it wreaks on both Greeks and Trojans. Chapman regarded the translation of this epic, and of Homer''s Odyssey (also available in Wordsworth Editions) as his life''s work, and dedicated himself to capturing the ''soul'' of the poem.
