"Odysseus and his men put out to sea in twelve ships of fifty oars, their white sails unfurled and their blue-painted prows thrusting through the waves as the wind filled the sails: nigh on sixty men on board each ship. And the heart of every man was happy as he thought how at last, after ten weary years of battle, he would once again see Ithaca, which was his home." Skillfully retold as clear, unencumbered narratives while retaining the dignity and excitment of Homer's original epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey were critically acclaimed as highly accessible editions for all ages when first published by Oxford in 1952. Now we are proud to reissue them in handsome paperback editions as part of the Oxford Myths and Legends series. The Iliad describes the last years of the war between the Trojans and the Greeks with tales of heroes, battles, quarrels, and especially of Achilles--the greatest warrior among all the Greeks. The Odyssey continues the story after the fall of Troy, as Odysseus begins his exciting journey home. His voyage to Circe's enchanted island, down to the underworld, to the land of the Sirens, and finally home to patient Penelope remains one of the best adventure stories ever told. All of the pride, daring, love, and revenge of these two enduring tales is captured in a way that spans ages and levels of familiarity with the works. Adults will find them the perfect complement to the originals for clarification or for pure reading pleasure. Younger children will love hearing the daring adventures read aloud, and young adults will appreciate a text that does not talk down to them, but is clear, understandable, and enjoyable. Joan Kiddell-Monroe's exquisite black and white illustrations blend a contemporary style with the classical and add to the timeless appeal of the stories. Homer's great epics are brought to life in an immediate and engaging way for every member of the family and for all ages of students of classical literature in these two classic reissues.… (mais)

I would not dream of reviewing The Iliad itself - a rather pointless exercise in fact.
However, having read several translations over the years, I do find this version light and easily digestible. It contains all the essentials, but edits out many of Homer's excessive speeches and lists. I believe it was originally intended for 'young adults', but it is not a dumbed down version. ( )
