1735. Blackwell, a Scottish classical scholar, first published this work anonymously. The work was intended to explain the causes of the superiority of Homer to all the poets who preceded or followed him. It shows considerable research, and contains many curious and interesting details, but its want of method made Bentley say that, when he had gone through half of it, he had forgotten the beginning, and, when he had finished the reading of it, he had forgotten the whole.
