La invocació de la Ilíada a “The 5-minute Iliad”.

Rage—Goddes, sing the rage of Peleus’ son Achilles!

If you don’t know it I can hum a few bars.

Murderous, doomed, he cost the Achaeans countless losses

(or the Argives, or the Greeks, same difference),

hurling down to the House of Death so many sturdy souls

that they opened an Achilles wing, And gave a discount.

Begin, Muse, when the two got in each other’s faces,

Agamemnon lord of men and brilliant Achilles

 

Greg Nagan (from Iliad I, 1-7), with great humor.
