The Iliad by Homer, trans. Stephen Mitchell: review

Orlando Bloom as Paris, in Troy
I've reviewed a new translation of The Iliad by Homer - it's by Stephen Mitchell, for The Sunday Telegraph, available online here. It's a barnstormer. You can read about the originals of the film Troy - and see what really happened, with Paris in his leopard skin, and Achilles playing the lyre.
