Excerpt from Landscape in Poetry From Homer to Tennyson: With Many Illustrative Examples
It is simply as Literature that the Greek and Roman poets, with those who follow, have been here regarded. Philological questions, with the inﬂuence of national History over Poetry, lie beyond my scope.
But so far as I may have succeeded in this effort it will meet the wish expressed by Matthew Arnold in one of his letters, that a somewhat considerable body of Greek and Latin literature should be so rendered as to make it accessible to readers, anxious for some familiarity with the literature of those great languages which they have studied but little.
