Reviews

"Mitchell's Iliad is slimmer and leaner than anything we have seen before.... His strong five-beat rhythm is arguably the best yet in English." --The New Yorker
"A daring new version of the epic poem." --The Wall Street Journal
"The verse is well-forged and clean-limbed, and achieves a powerful simplicity. Mitchell has re-energised the Iliad for a new generation." --The Sunday Telegraph (London)
