Excerpt from The Iliad of Homer, Vol. 1: Translated Into English Verse in the Spenserian Stanza When, after translating the Odyssey, I determined to translate the Iliad, my sense of the general character of the poem led me to weigh the several claims of three systems of verse as the means for representing it in English. These three were the hexameter, blank verse, and the Spenserian stanza. There is at first sight far Is to be said for the last than for either of He former; but, after a few experiments in each, I was led to the conclusion that for me at least it was better to adopt it notwithstanding. My reasons for this, so far as the hexameter is concerned, win probably be shared, and have no doubt been anticipated, by many; but I can scarcely account for the fact, that the consideration which overwhelmed me in respect of blank verse has not, to all appearance, even presented itself to a single recent competitor in that field.
