Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's translation is the best of the ones I've read.

1066: The Year of the Conquest by David Howarth. The courses I'm taking now have sooo much assigned reading, but it's all more or less awesome.

I think it's supposed to be the Harkonnens, not sure, it's from the computer game.

I should also add that Dune will be the SECOND best science fiction book once I'm done writing The Republic
