Local author brings new translation of Homer’s Iliad tomorrow

Don’t know about you, but it’s been ages since we last got around to translating the Iliad.

Somebody who has managed the feat lately is William Guy, a Pittsburgh-based scholar and former educator.

Guy stops by Classic Lines bookstore tomorrow night, Wed., May 20, to read from and discuss his new translation of this foundational text of Western civ, and arguably still the greatest poem about war.

Guy, a Pittsburgh native who formerly taught at the Ellis School, is the author of several books. 

Classic Lines, Pittsburgh’s newest indie bookstore, is located at 5825 Forbes Ave., in Squirrel Hill.

The event is free.
