Just learn Homeric Greek. There is an excellent book called "Homeric Greek - a Book for Beginners" by Clyde Pharr, also available online here on Textkit http://www.textkit.com/learn/ID/165/author_id/81/.

If you do a search, you will find past discussions of audio recordings. Beware though, Scribo has some very high standards. So perhaps the best is just to pay Scribo to record Homer. Despite her jet setting around Greece, I'm sure she would make the time. What's your price for a complete recording of Illiad Scrib? Hades, maybe I'll chip in.
