Sententiae Recentiores: Homer in Greek Prose

“It is no wonder that a translation done word-for-word does not retain the meter of the original, since even Homer, transformed into prose in his own language, can scarcely be made to render any sense.”

Nec mirum, si apud Latinum metrum non servet ad verbum expressa translatio, cum Homericus eadem lingua versus in prosa vix cohaereat.
