Title; E269| ON HOMERS POETRY t348
HomersPoetry-prose1; E269| Every Poem must necessarily be a perfect Unity, but why Homers is
HomersPoetry-prose2; E269| peculiarly so I cannot tell: he has told the story of
HomersPoetry-prose3; E269| Bellerophon & omitted the Judgment of Paris which is not only a
HomersPoetry-prose4; E269| part, but a principal part of Homers subject
HomersPoetry-prose5; E269| But when a Work has Unity it is as much in a Part as in the
HomersPoetry-prose6; E269| Whole. the Torso is as much a Unity as the Laocoon
HomersPoetry-prose7; E269| As Unity is the cloke of folly so Goodness is the cloke of
HomersPoetry-prose8; E269| knavery Those who will have Unity exclusively in Homer come out
HomersPoetry-prose9; E269| with a Moral like a sting in the tail: Aristotle says Characters
HomersPoetry-prose10; E269| are either Good or Bad: now Goodness or Badness has nothing to do
HomersPoetry-prose11; E269| with Character. an Apple tree a Pear tree a Horse a Lion, are
HomersPoetry-prose12; E269| Characters but a Good Apple tree or a Bad, is an Apple tree
HomersPoetry-prose13; E269| still: a Horse is not more a Lion for being a Bad Horse. that is
HomersPoetry-prose14; E269| its Character; its Goodness or Badness is another consideration.
HomersPoetry-prose15; E269| It is the same with the Moral of a whole Poem as with the Moral
HomersPoetry-prose16; E269| Goodness
HomersPoetry-prose17; E270| of its parts Unity & Morality, are secondary considerations &
HomersPoetry-prose18; E270| belong to Philosophy & not to Poetry, to Exception & not to Rule,
HomersPoetry-prose19; E270| to Accident & not to Substance. the Ancients calld it eating of
HomersPoetry-prose20; E270| the tree of good & evil.
HomersPoetry-prose21; E270| The Classics, it is the Classics! & not Goths nor Monks, that
HomersPoetry-prose22; E270| Desolate Europe with Wars.
