Excerpt from The Iliad of Homer, Rendered Into English Blank Verse, Vol. 1 of 2

I have adopted, not without hesitation, the Latin, rather than the Greek, nomenclature for the Heathen Deities. I have been induced to do so from the mani fest incongruity of confounding the two; and from the fact that though English readers may be familiar with the names of Zeus, or Aphrodite, or even Poseidon, those of Hera, or Ares, or Hephaestus or Leto, would hardly convey to them a definite signification.
