"Picture the east Aegean sea by night, / And on a beach aslant its shimmering / Upwards of 50,000 men / Asleep like spoons beside their lethal Fleet." In 1959, British poet Christopher Logue began an ambitious undertaking: to rewrite Homer's Iliad for the modern age. At the time of Logue's 2011 passing, his unfinished adaptation had already become a literary legend while inspiring musical and dramatic versions as well. Here his friend Christopher Reid brings together its separate books and unpublished fragments: Kings, The Husbands, All Day Permanent Red, and the Whitbread Prize winner Cold Calls.
