Excerpt from The Iliad of Homer, Vol. 2 I all the books of the Iliad, there is fcarce any more pleating than the third. It may be divided into five parts, each of which has a beauty different from the other. The firlt contains what pafl'ed before the two armies, and the propofal of the combat between Paris and Menelaus: the attention and fufpenfe of thefe mighty bolts, which were jutl: upon the point of Jo1n1ng battle, and the lofty manner of offering and accepting this important and un expefied challenge, have fomething ln them wonderfully pompous, and of an amufing folemnity. The fecond part, which defcribes the behaviour of Helena in this juncture, her conference with the old king and his counfellors, with the review of the heroes from the battlements, is an epifode entirely of another fort, which ex eels 1n the natural and pathetick. The third confilts of the cere monies of the oath on both fides, and the preliminaries to the com bat; with the beautiful retreat of Priam, who in the tendernefs of a parent withdraws from the fight of the duel: thefe particulars detain the reader in expectation, and heighten his impatience for the fight itfelf. The fourth is the defcription of the due], an exaé't piece of painting, where we fee every attitude, motion, and aftion of the combatants particularly and diflinétly, and which con eludes with a furprizing propriety, in the refcue of Paris by Ven'us. The machine, of that Goddefs, which makes the fifth part, and whofe end is to reconcile Paris and Helena, is admirable in every circumfiance: the remonfirance (he holds with the Goddefs, the reluétance with which the obeys her, the reproaches (he calls upon Paris, and the flattery and courtlhip with which he [0 foon wins her over to him. Helen (the main caufe of this war) Was not to be made an odious character; {he is drawn by this great matter with the Brick firokes, as a-frai], but not as an abandoned creature. She has perpetual firuggles of virtue on the one fide, and foftnefl'es which overcome them, on the other. Our author has been remarkably careful to tell us this whenever be but nightly names her 1n the foregoing part of his work, the 1s. Reprefented at the fame time as repentant and it is thus we fee her at large at her firfi appearance in the prefent book; which is one of the (hortelt of the whole Iliad, but in recompence has beauties almofi in every line, and molt of them (0 obvious, that to acknowledge them we need only to read them.

Excerpt from The Iliad of Homer, Vol. 1 This observation may appear to savour of satyrical censorious ness, but I believe it to be extremely just. That Wild and exube rant genius, Dryden, has been of late years much undervalued amidst the public admiration of mere regular and chastised writers but has invariably commanded the veneration of consummate judges.

Quod, ut vitium est, ita copias vitium Which, though it 'i be a fault, is the fault of innate fertility, says Quintilian: an author, with whom our poet appears, no less from this preface.

This, the fourth volume in the six-volume Commentary on the Iliad being prepared under the General Editorship of Professor G. S. Kirk, covers Books 13-16, including the Battle for the Ships, the Deception of Zeus and the Death of Patroklos. Three introductory essays discuss the role of Homer's gods in his poetry; the origins and development of the epic diction; and the transmission of the text, from the bard's lips to our own manuscripts. It is now widely recognized that the first masterpiece of Western literature is an oral poem; Professor Janko's detailed commentary aims to show how this recognition can clarify many linguistic and textual problems, entailing a radical reassessment of the work of Homer's Alexandrian editors. The commentary also explores the poet's subtle creativity in adapting traditional materials, whether formulae, typical scenes, mythology, or imagery, so as best to move, inspire, and entertain his audience, ancient and modern alike. Discussion of the poem's literary qualities and structure is, where possible, kept separate from that of more technical matters.
