This text contains the first three volumes of Christopher Logue's recomposition of Homer's "Iliad - Kings", "The Husbands" and "War Music".
'Less a translation than an adaptation. Less an adaptation, in fact, than an original poem of considerable power... The language of War Music is applied with such a barbaric certainty of touch that, even at its most gorgeous or most ferocious, we are hardly aware of it. This is a work of a highly literary quality in which everything is vividly imagined, every image freshly minted.' Observer
