Reading List: The Anger of Achilles

The Anger of Achilles: The Iliad
by Homer, translated by Robert Graves

My Homeric marathon may end here (I may finally finish The Siege of Troy, depending how I feel after this one), with another modern translation of The Iliad, by Robert Graves, this time a little more expansive than An Iliad two books ago.  It sounds like it should be fun (but I've thought that before).  I expect to take more than a couple days reading this one, but it's always fun to read shorter books that only take a few days with a fairly leisurely pace (I'm not a fast reader and I don't typically devote most of my time to reading, but if I spend enough of it, I can usually finish any book in a month).
