Excerpt from The Wrath of Achilleus: Translated From the Iliad Into Quantitative Hexameters
There have been many attempts to write Englig verse in quantity but none to my knowledge has achieved popular success or diminished the reju dice which is naturally felt against any ta... mpering with the estab 'shed metrical system. Such attempts seem to imply disparagement of a prosody which contented the great octs of the ast. I therefore feel it due both to my reader and to myself that I shou d define my own position in this matter, point out the exact object at which I aim and explain the method by which I endeavour to reach it.
