Robert Fagles. Leigh Grossman. The Iliad and The Odyssey. Homer is set in dactylic hexameter, and this does not read well in English. Previous solutions have been to set it to iambic pentameter, or as Chapman did — to rhyming couplets. Fagles used five beats per line, and Lattimore used an English version of the long dactylic line. Butcher and Lang made an important contribution, as theirs was the first English translation into prose. Wilson made the decision to translate into verse, which is admirable as this is reflective of the original. Her work as a result is very focussed.
Each book of the Odyssey is titled. The blame is shifted to the men, and she discusses this choice in detail in the introduction. This in itself is a significant change in translation, as it alters our understanding of the text. They are dispensed with because the Odyssey is not to be listened to as it was in antiquity, but in the present time it is read.
Wilson means to modernise the language and make the text relatable. Inside, she was singing and weaving with a shuttle made of gold. Her voice was beautiful. Around the cave a luscious forest flourished: alder, poplar, and scented cypress. It was full of wings. Birds nested there but hunted out at sea: The owls, the hawks, the gulls with gaping beaks. This Wilson demonstrates in specific highlighted areas of the epic. Though her tone is not level, largely due to the modernised choices, the areas that are smooth, capture the beauty and depth of Homer.
At the reunion of Odysseus and Penelope her translation is sensitive and at ease. You made my stubborn heart believe in you. Other difficulties will also disappear as soon as the development of the poem in the writer's mind is understood. I have dealt with this at some length in pp.

This poem begins with line 80 roughly of Book i. The introduction of lines xi. For roughly the Return occupies eight Books, and Penelope and the Suitors sixteen. Lastly, to deal with a very unimportant point, I observe that the Leipsic Teubner edition of makes Books ii. Stops are things of such far more recent date than the Odyssey, that there does not seem much use in adhering to the text in so small a matter; still, from a spirit of mere conservatism I have preferred to do so.
