Acquiring the Iliad

Post by Kasper » Mon Oct 27, 2008 12:11 am

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.

I am after the whole thing in a book, if possible.

Does anyone know of such edition?

Thanks,
K

M.M. Willcock's two-volume set should have what you need. Twelve books in each volume, with text and notes. Duckworth has been printing them, and I'd be surprised if you couldn't get them easily in Australia.
