In a long note David Garnett quoted Richard Garnett on Matthew Arnold's essay 'On translating Homer': 'with all the aid Mr Arnold has given other poets, Pope is not dethroned. A version which is in many respects a travesty of the Iliad remains the national version. Landor, Keats, Shelley, Tennyson, Mr Arnold himself, have imbued our literature with the Hellenic spirit and made it notorious to all that whatever else Pope may be, he is not a Greek. And yet his verses continue the possession of the nation, while the rest are only for scholars and amateurs... Pope's 'Iliad' indeed, neither should, nor can sink into oblivion; it will always live as a great example of the energy and resource of the English language.'
