Of the translations, I've read only Robert Fitzgerald's. Might I recommend, as elsewhere in the comments, War and the Iliad, an NYRB collection of essays by Simone Weil, Rachel Bespaloff, and Herman Broch? The Weil essay, which I first read long ago, strikes me now as saying more about Weil than about the Iliad; Bespaloff's essays I think excellent, and blurb quotes Robert Fitzgerald to that effect. Broch's essay is fascinating, but less focused on the poem.
