The Iliad and the Odyssey

William Cowper, Letter to William Unwin (June 12, 1785):
John, once the Little, but now almost the Great, and promising to be altogether such in time, make yourself master of the Iliad and of the Odyssey as soon as you can, and then you will be master of two of the finest poems that ever were composed by man, and composed in the finest language that ever man uttered.
