Overview

This book contains Alexander Pope’s seminal interpretation of the original Homeric poem, published serially from 1715 to 1720. Hailed by Samuel Johnson as “a performance which no age or nation could hope to equal,” this is a classic text that has moulded centuries of British and American culture through its beautiful and timeless poetry. This edition provides a perfect rendering of this fine English verse which captures wonderfully the song of Homer – a must-read for absolutely everyone. Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744), was an English poet most renowned for his satirical verse and for the writing of this book. He is also the third-most quoted writer in 'The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations' after Shakespeare and Tennyson. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
