Translation from Iliad

I thought I would share a little translation from the first book of Iliad that I worked on. Please take a look if you wish:

It is not meant to be "perfect" or "professional", but I hoped nevertheless it may have some virtue.<pre></pre>

I'm afraid many potential classicists might stay unmotivated to start learning Greek, with such a fine translation in their hands. :P :P :P
