"A stroke of genius in Fitzgerald's rendering . . . [Fitzgerald] can teach us to read Greek with fresh eyes."—John Talbot, The New Criterion
Robert Fitzgerald's translations of The Iliad, The Odyssey, The Aeneid, and the Oedipus plays of Sophocles (created with Dudley Fitts) are modern classics. An admired poet and teacher of writing, Fitzgerald died in 1985.
