Homer: The Iliad, trans. Robert Fagles (1991)

Almost halfway thru a re-read of hands down the greatest book I've ever read. The characters (god, hero and ordinary human) are all amazingly alive.

I am alternating the excellent Fagles translation with an interesting prose version by A.S. Kline I found online.
