The Poems of George Chapman (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Poems of George ChapmanThe fame which from his own day to ours has never wholly failed to attend the memory of George Chapman has yet been hitherto of a looser and vaguer kind than floats about the memory of most other poets. In the great revival of studious enthusiasm for the works of the many famous men who won themselves a name during the seventy-five memorable years of his laborious life, the mass of his original work has been left too long unnoticed and unhonoured. Our 'Homer-Lucan,' as he was happily termed by Daniel m that admirable Defence of Rhyme which remains to this day one of the most perfect examples of sound and temperate sense, of pure style and just judgment, to be found in the literature of criticism, has received it may be not much less than his due meed of praise for those Homeric labours by which his name is still chiefly known: but what tire great translator could accomplish when fighting for his own hand few students of English poetry have been careful to inquire or competent to appreciate.And yet there are not many among his various and unequal writings which we can open without some sense of great qualities in the workman whose work lies before as. There are few poets from whose remains a more copious and noble anthology of detached beauties might be selected. He has a singular force and depth of moral thought, a constant energy and intensity of expression, an occasional delicacy and perfection of fanciful or reflective beauty, which should have ensured him a place in the front rank at least of gnomic poets.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
