I wish we could actually do this.

You have to read it in dactylic hexameter, I don't even really care what translation as long it's in dactylic hexameter. That's the only way to read it

the only way to read it is to translate/scan the latin yourself you silly imbeciles

if you're going to read it in translation, prose is ideal - the meter's never going to have the same effect as it does in the original and it allows the translator to pick the most accurate... nevermind, this is clearly bait.

What you posted in the OP ... I sure do hope people don't read fucking prose translations of The Iliad. I don't think it's so unreasonable either.

Prose isn't really that bad. Honestly, the iliad is something to read multiple times, so try new translations, poetry or prose.
