"In The Husbands, Logue trains his lyrical eye upon Homer's ultimate femme fatale, Helen of Troy, and her ardently mortal husbands, Menelaus and Paris." "Carrying the Homeric world into our own, Logue's language is at once musical, profoundly tender, and frighteningly graphic. With cinematic speed, disarming confidence, and lyrical care, Logue gives us a reading of classic literature that makes unquestionably clear its relevance to our own time"--Jacket

9 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Your life at every instant up for-- / Gone. / And, candidly, who gives a toss? / Your heart beats strong. Your spirit grips" writes Christopher Logue in his original adaption of Homer's Iliad, the uncanny "translation of translations" that won ecstatic and unparalleled acclaim as "the best translation of Homer since Pope's" (The New York Review of Books). Logue's account of Homer's Iliad is a radical reimagining and reconfiguration of Homer's tale of warfare, human folly, and the power of the gods in language and verse that is emphatically modern and "possessed of a very terrible beauty" (Slate). Illness prevented him from bringing his version of the Iliad to completion, but enough survives in notebooks and letters to assemble a compilation of War Music, Kings, The Husbands, and All Day Permanent Red, along with previously unpublished material, in one final illuminating volume arranged by his friend and fellow poet Christopher Reid. The result comes as near as possible to representing the poet's complete vision and confirms what his admirers have long known: that "Logue's Homer is likely to endure as one of the great long poems of the twentieth century" (The Times Literary Supplement)"--

"Helen, the world's most beautiful woman, the wife of Lord Menelaos of Sparta, left Greece in the company of Paris, the son of Priam, King of Troy. To repossess her, a thousand Greek ships sailed to Troy. Nine years have passed. The Greeks have not achieved their aim. Indeed, after a quarrel between Achilles their leading fighter and Agamemnon their king, the Trojans, led by Paris's brother, Prince Hector, have driven the Greeks off the plain of Troy and back behind the palisade protecting their ships. Achilles refuses to help them. It is night." "The scene is set for Cold Calls, the fifth and penultimate instalment of Logue's Homer, an ongoing project for both page and stage which has taken several decades to unfold."--Jacket

War music : an account of books 1-4 and 16-19 of Homer's Illiad by Christopher Logue( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his brilliant rendering of eight books of Homer's "Iliad, Logue here retells some of the most evocative episodes of the war classic, including the death of Patroclus and Achilles's fateful return to battle, that sealed the doom of Troy. Compulsively readable, Logue's poetry flies off the page, and his compelling descriptions of the horrors of war have a surreal, dreamlike quality that has been compared to the films of Kurosawa. Retaining the great poem's story line but rewriting every incident, Logue brings the Trojan War to life for modern audiences
