some questions about meter and recitation

Periodically I return to Samuel Clarke's editions of the Iliad and the Odyssey. Alas, my Greek is nowhere near so fluent as my Latin, and Clarke has been an enormous help in getting me through large chunks of the texts.

I note many differences between the Greek hexameter and the Latin, and of course I have some questions regarding the versification.

1) In the opinion of the Textkit scholars, where's my best starting point for ...

Acquiring the Iliad

Does anyone know where i could purchase a copy of the Iliad, in Greek to be sure, preferably with some good notes.

I am unable to find anything but translations, or books that only have book I-III, etc.

Does anyone know of such edition?

Thanks,
K

Anyway, I have completely forgotten what little I had learned about Greek. I looked at Marinone on Amazon as a potential learning tool, but thought it would only frustrate me ...

Hexameters Englished

Salvete Graeci,

A few years ago someone posted an interesting example of a 19th cen. attempt to translate a fragment of Homer into English following strict hexameter meter. I have searched for this on Textkit, but cannot find it. Could someone with a better memory direct me to it, amabo te?

Valete,

Timotheus

Is there a complete audio of the Iliad available?

Valete,

Timotheus
