Published translations of the Iliad run into many dozens, if not hundreds, but none present the story in the form of sonnets.The sonnet works well, conveying the story fluidly and giving a sense of the marvellous poetry that is found in Homer. The narrative within the Iliad is followed closely; major omissions being those relating to exploits prior to the siege of Troy, as related by elders such as Nestor, and much of the detail of one-to-one combat involving the minor characters.The 317 poems within this volume may well be the longest, strict, sonnet sequence ever written in English.
