Opis: An Essay on the Original Genius and Writings of Homer - Wood Robert

Excerpt from An Essay on the Original Genius and Writings of Homer: With a Comparative View of the Ancient and Present State of the Troade

Having, in my Preface to the Ruins of Palmyra, informed the Reader, that one of the objects of our Eastern voyages was to visit one of the most celebrated scenes of ancient story, in order to compare their present appearance with the early classical ideas, we had conceived of them; and particularly, that we proposed to read the Iliad and Odyssey in the countries, where Achilles fought, where Ulysses travelled, and where Homer sung; I considered myself in some sort accountable to the public, and my friends, for the result of this part of our scheme: and therefore determined to employ my first leisure in throwing together such observations, as this inquiry had furnished; confining my first Essay of this kind to what concerns the Greek Poet.

But, however ambitious I was to engage in the cause of Homer, the difficulties I found as to the manner of doing him justice, greatly embarrassed me. For though our expectations from this object of our curiosity were by no means disappointed, yet I almost despaired of a satisfactory method of conveying to others a tolerable idea of the entertainment, we received from it on the spot.
