From the Publisher

TOLSTOY CALLED THE ILIAD A miracle; Goethe said that it always thrust him into a state of astonishment. Homer's story is thrilling, and his Greek is perhaps the most beautiful poetry ever sung or written. But until now, even the best English translations haven't been able to re-create the energy and simplicity, the speed, grace, and pulsing rhythm of the original.

In Stephen Mitchell's Iliad, the epic story resounds again across 2,700 years, as if the lifeblood of its heroes Achilles and Patroclus, Hector and Priam flows in every word. And we are there with them, amid the horror and ecstasy of war, carried along by a poetry that lifts even the most devastating human events into the realm of the beautiful.

Mitchell's Iliad is the first translation based on the work of the preeminent Homeric scholar Martin L. West, whose edition of the original Greek identifies many passages that were added after the Iliad was first written down, to the detriment of the music and the story. Omitting these hundreds of interpolated lines restores a dramatically sharper, leaner text. In addition, Mitchell's illuminating introduction opens the epic still further to our understanding and appreciation.

Now, thanks to Stephen Mitchell's scholarship and the power of his language, the Iliad's ancient story comes to moving, vivid new life.

Seller Comments:

Signed by Author. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 467 pages. As New in As New dust jacket. New and Definitive Translation of the ancient classic. One of the most significant literary events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. The book is beautifully produced on archival stock paper, with cloth boards, blood-red satin ribbon marker, and a gold-dominant DJ design by Eric Fuentecilla. Presents Homer's "The Iliad", one of the greatest and most beloved works of Western civilization, in a stunning new translation by Stephen Mitchell. "Homer's story is thrilling, and his Greek is the most beautiful poetry ever sung or written. But until now, even the best English translations have not been able to re-create the energy and simplicity, the speed, grace, and pulsing rhythm of the original. In Stephen Mitchell's 'Iliad', the epic story resounds again across 2, 700 years, as if the lifeblood of its heroes Achilles and Patroclus, Hector and Priam flows in every word. And we are there with them amid the horror and ecstasy of war, carried along by a poetry that lifts even the most devastating human events into the realm of the beautiful. Mitchell's illuminating Introduction opens the epic still further to our understanding and appreciation" (Publisher's blurb). "A muscular and nuanced translation that will surely bring many new readers to this great work" (John Banville). An absolute "must-have" title for Stephen Mitchell and "The Iliad" collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Stephen Mitchell. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A very scarce signed copy thus. One of the greatest literary texts of all time in a definitive new translation for our time. A fine collectible copy. ISBN 1439163375.
