The Homeric Hymns (Dunquin Series) by Homer

This is one of the most remarkable translations of an ancient Greek text ever made. Scrupulously faithful to every line of Homers text, its language nonetheless sings & moves, evoking the mythic imagination of ancient Greece in a manner rarely captured before. By avoiding the conventions of academic style which afflict so many classical translators, Charles Boers verse delivers for us the world of Homers Gods & Goddesses as a fresh & stunning experience. Since 1972, this version of the Homeric Hymns - nominated for a National Book Award - has been acclaimed by the critics & public alike and has widely established itself as a classroom text. Thanks to Charles Boers scrupulous & loving respect for Greek religious experience & his own superb verse, we can see again a landscape that was always there, but which had unaccountably & inexcusably vanished from view...--William Arrowsmith.
