I'm actually on book IV now. Got the verse version just as you recommended. It's Allen Mandelbaum's translation, to be exact, and he did such a fine job on it. There's also a Glossary at the back in case I get confused will all those Greek names. And it only costs $5. Pretty sweet if you ask me.

And of course, I'm liking it a lot. I think I just might want to read a few poems after this. More thoughts to come once I'm done.
