A follow up of the previous post: you classically trained humanists out there, any strong feelings, either way, on the various translations (in particular consideration: Robert Fagles, Robert Fitzgerald, Richmond Lattimore) of the Homeric epics? I have only read the Fitzgerald, happily now reprinted by Farrar, Straus and Giroux. I was enthralled by them then, particullarly by the Iliad; but that was a dozen years ago, and I can't really trust myself that far back.
