Description

Excerpt from The Iliad of Homer: Translated Into English Blank Verse Of the noble version of Mr. Bryant, the present translator has made free use as a guide and standard of comparison: and he has nothing to add to the admirable preface of that great writer, saving that his use of the Romanized names of the gods appears to lend a false air of Latinity to the Greek concep. Tions. Employment has also been made of the prose version of Theodore Alois Buckley, which has the merit of profound sdiolarship and critical analysis.
