The Iliad by Homer( Book )

2 editions published in 1936 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The centuries old epic about the wrath of Achilles is rendered into modern English verse by a renowned translator and accompanied by an introduction that reassesses the identity of Homer. In Robert Fagles' beautifully rendered text, the Iliad overwhelms us afresh. The huge themes godlike, yet utterly human of savagery and calculation, of destiny defied, of triumph and grief compel our own humanity. Time after time, one pauses and re-reads before continuing. Fagles' voice is always that of a poet and scholar of our own age as he conveys the power of Homer. Robert Fagles and Bernard Knox are to be congratulated and praised on this admirable work

Concerning the Indian desires for a confederacy and the possibility of another Indian war; commenting on Johnson's recent report; saying "A general Alliance and confederacy of the Savages by whatever means it is brought about, has, as you truly observe, a very unfavorable appearance and will most probably be attended with very dangerous consequences. Every circumstance stated in your letter, induces an apprehension, that such a plan of confederacy is in greater maturity than I at first conceived, and that we may probably be soon involved in the dreadful consequences of an Indian War. It is true that by a detection of the different channels through which the Indians pursue this favourite Object, some advantage will be gained and many of their designs may be frustrated; and therefore you cannot be too attentive to what passes amongst them; but I still fear, that, unless the ground of their jealousy and discontent could be effectually removed, which I am sensible it now cannot, an Indian War is an evil which sooner or later we must submit to; and the only comfort I have under this apprehension is in the assurance you give me that you shall be able to convince those Indians who are endeavouring to create this confederacy, that we have a sufficient number who are well attached to His Majesty's Interest, and who will be eager on such an Occasion to give testimony of their fidelity and Attachment."
