I do love Graves' translation of the Iliad. He has rendered the work into eminently readable prose, with pieces of poetry where appropriate (although his obsession with rhyming these stanzas makes them a little bit doggerel). His experiences in the first world war give him a unique perspective on leadership which he uses deftly to paint Agamemnon and Hector as deeply flawed generals. These are not good leaders; they are simply the leaders that the men must learn to work with. Other heroes stand up to them, coerce and cajole to get their own way or otherwise benefit the fighting men. Diomedes, Sarpedon, Ajax, and Aeneas are shown as kinder princes, while people like Odysseus and Achilles exemplify that particular kind of self-centred 'hero' who barely notices the horrors he causes by his actions (or inactions). If you're put off by verse translations of the Iliad, Graves' delightful prose version is a good option. ( )

An extremely clumsy translation by an otherwise capable poet. I cannot critique the scholarship. but the word choice is ugly. ( )
