1721 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Alexander Pope

Anonymous, "To Mr. Pope, on his Translation of Homer" The Grove; or a Collection of Original Poems (1721) 265.



So much, dear Pope, thy English Iliad Charms,
Where Pity melts us, or where Passion warms,
That after-Ages shall with Wonder seek,
Who 'twas translated Homer into Greek.
