"The translation of Homer, published by George Chapman, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, is one of the greatest treasures the English language can boast."-GODWIN.

"Chapman writes and feels as a poet-as Homer might have written had he lived in England in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. It is an exquisite poëm, with almost unexampled sweetness, and beauty of language, all over spirit and feeling."-COLERIDGE.

"I have just finished Chapman's Homer. Did you ever read it ?-it has the most continuous power of interesting you all along. * * * * The earnest⚫ness and passion which he has put into every part of these poems would be incredible to a reader of mere modern translations."-CHARLES LAMB.

"Waller could never read over the translation of Chapman without incredible transport."-DRYDEN.

"Chapman's translation is often exceedingly Homeric; a praise which Pope seldom attained."-HALLAM.

"With Chapman, Pope had frequent consultations, and perhaps never translated any passage till he read his version; which indeed he has been sometimes suspected of using instead of the Greek."-DR. JOHNSON.

"Chapman-the vigorous and fiery translator of Homer."-ARIS WILLMOT. 'Chapman's truly grand version of Homer. *** When we consider the subtle influence of poetry upon the rising spirits of the age, it tempts me to hazard the speculation that, if Chapman's noble paraphrase had been read, instead of Pope's enervating monotony, and as extensively, the present class of readers would have been more poetical," &c.-R. H. HORNE.

"Pope, Sotheby, and Cowper, the best known translators of Homer. By general consent, Chapman's version is far more Homeric than these." -PROFESSOR F. W. NEWMAN.

The editor of these five rare volumes has done an incalculable service to English Literature, by taking George Chapman's folios out of the dust of time-honoured libraries, by collating them with loving care and patience, and, through the agency of his enterprising publisher, bringing Chapman entire and complete within the reach of those who can best appreciate and least afford to purchase the early editions."--Athenæum.
