rouse's translation of homer's epic is SO BAD i wanted to perform physical violence upon this book (i did throw it about, a bit). i keep it around just to remind myself what translation not to try, next time, 'cause my memory sucks. i'm sure the iliad is great, but if rouse wasn't dead, i'd kill 'im myself. i only wish there were enough left of 'im to drag around behind a chariot. i'd build the chariot. "shootafar"... FUCK! i actually wrote an amazon review on this one, to warn the world.
