Salvete Graeci,

A few years ago someone posted an interesting example of a 19th cen. attempt to translate a fragment of Homer into English following strict hexameter meter. I have searched for this on Textkit, but cannot find it. Could someone with a better memory direct me to it, amabo te?

Valete,

Timotheus

I asked our excellent Textkit search engine to search for "Homer + English hexameter" and got this:

http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-foru ... +hexameter

Could it be what you're looking for?

Cheers,
