All Day Permanent Red is the fourth instalment of Christopher Logue's celebrated account of the Iliad, the first three of which were collected in Homer: War Music (2001). In this new episode, Logue focuses upon the various battle scenes of the classic text, further testifying to the standing of these translations as a modern landmark in their own right. 'The best translation of Homer since Pope's.' Garry Wills, New York Review of Books 'Perhaps Logue's greatest achievement is his ability to make us see the Trojan War as Homer's audience would have done. We hear the music of war and it is thrilling. We see the cinematography of the battlefield and it is astonishing. We marvel at the strength and superhuman courage of heroes and, despite ourselves, celebrate their victories and mourn their losses. This is, without doubt, one of the landmarks of twentieth-century poetry - a work of powerful resonance and relevance that will continue to dazzle familiar as well as new readers.' James O'Brien
