Hello Artemidoros and welcome to Textkit!<br /><br />This question comes up fairly often in the Forum and we all seem to have our favorites. My own recommendation would be Clyde Pharr's "Homeric Greek". It will guide you through the first book of the Iliad. Several Forum members have already read it; others are even now working their way through it. Hence you'll be able to get plenty of help here.<br /><br />Of course the same can be said for other texts, so I'll fall back on the chief reason for my recommendation: in language, content, and execution the Iliad is simply magnificent.
<br /><br />Cordially,<br /><br />Paul<br /><br />
