Pope spent his formative years as a poet translating Homer, beginning with the Iliad, and in his translation he successfully found a style that answers the sublimity and grace of Homer. Steven Shankman provides scholarly critical apparatus for this Penguin English Poets edition, which is based on the 1743 edition that contains the poet's final revisions. Pope's Preface and the three indexes are also included. Most importantly, this edition makes available for the first time in paperback Pope's notes in their entirety, enabling us to observe one poetic genius illuminate the work of another.

Homer was a Greek poet. He is credited as the author of two of the greatest and most influential works of literature, The Iliad and The Odyssey. According to Herodotus, Homer lived in the 8th Century BCE, and most modern scholars agree, but various ancient sources place him earlier--closer to the time represented in the Trojan War. Regardless, the works of Homer are epic and they stand the test of time.Language Notes:
