One or Two Hours a Day

John Burnet (1863-1928), "Form and Matter in Classical Teaching," Essays and Addresses (London: Chatto & Windus, 1929), pp. 29-45 (at 31):
I do not say it would be a bad thing if we were to encourage more cursory reading among our pupils; it would, indeed, be a very good thing. A book of Homer can be read in about an hour, and it would be an excellent thing for a boy to go right through the Iliad and Odyssey in a month or six weeks, giving one or two hours a day to it.
