An Eighth Day View:

"These authoritative translations consign all other complete collections to the wastebasket."--Robert Brustein, "The New Republic"
"This is it. No qualifications. Go out and buy it everybody."--Kenneth Rexroth, "The Nation"
"The translations deliberately avoid the highly wrought and affectedly poetic; their idiom is contemporary....They have life and speed and suppleness of phrase."--"Times Education Supplement"
"These translations belong to our time. A keen poetic sensibility repeatedly quickens them; and without this inner fire the most academically flawless rendering is dead."--Warren D. Anderson, "American Oxonian"
"The critical commentaries and the versions themselves...are fresh, unpretentious, above all, functional."--"Commonweal"
"Grene is one of the great translators."--Conor Cruise O'Brien, "London Sunday Times"
"Richmond Lattimore is that rara avis in our age, the classical scholar who is at the same time an accomplished poet."--Dudley Fitts, "New York Times Book Review"
