I just found lines 1 - 30 of the Iliad on YouTube, recited by Kleber Kosta. Sorry I can't provide a direct link; I'm browsing on a Wii. (l-e-t-t-e-r b-y l-e-t-t-e-r!) Just go to YouTube and search “Kleber Kosta Iliad” and it'll be the first result.
What do the advanced members here think of this rendition? I thought it was inspiring, and I enjoyed actually hearing how the sounds, vowels, etc. correspond to the explanations I'm reading in Pharr and on the internet. There were not a few divergences from how I was saying it, and I'm looking forward to studying this video in more depth.

It's actually how I do it, i.e a mix of modern Greek thrown in there. Incidently one of the members here (Annis?) has a few lines recorded somewhere which sound good.
Will not answer questions which only need a basic knowledge of grammar. Pay attention to the textbook.

Let me say first off that I am a big fan of this guys videos in general.
In my opinion how one evaluates a reading like this has little to do with how well one knows Homeric Greek and everything to do with personal taste. There are lots of different ways one can read Homer. I will simply say this reading is very easy for me to understand and sounds wonderful to me.

Oh well, I ve been through almost all the posts of the topic here but I am unable to find something for the basics, almost all posts are either for moderate level users or the highly advanced user like this post is, I want something for basics, can someone provide me some link to the basics of greek language?
