    Like Achilles, he lacks consideration and forethought. Yet this he has supplied with a vaster Popes Iliad book of incidents and events, and crowded with a greater number of councils, speeches, battles, and episodes of all kinds, than are to be found even in those poems whose schemes are of the utmost latitude and irregularity. I was obliged to Sir Richard Steele for a very early recommendation of my undertaking to the public. This, this is misery! Achilles tells him that there are no more prizes and that the king should wait until Troy has been conquered. These were written in the popular Augustan form of the "imitation" of a classical poet, not so much a translation of his works as an updating with contemporary references.

    Book XVI[ edit ] Two friends, two bodies with one soul inspir'd. At awful distance long they silent Popes Iliad book, Loth to advance, or speak their hard command; Decent confusion! Achilles deeply loves and trusts Phoenix, and Phoenix mediates between him and Agamemnon during their quarrel.
