With a line and a language hammered out in public performance, [Stanley Lombardo] has made a verse that can move an audience to tears and even to laughter.

Douglass ParkerProfessor of Classics, University of Texas, AustinName

Lombardo has the simple gift of summoning up a Homeric flavor wherever he turns. Homer is here a vindication of poetry.

Paolo VivanteProfessor Emeritus of Classics, McGill University

Lombardo has created a Homeric voice for his contemporaries . . . His characters come alive as real people expressing real feelings with urgency and verve.

Joseph RussoProfessor of Classics, Haverford College
