"He begged of General Paoli to repeat one of the introductory stanzas of the first book of Tasso"s ""Jerusalem"", which he did, and then Johnson found fault with the simile of sweetening the edges of a cup for a child, being transferred from Lucretius into an epick poem. The General said he did not imagine Homer"s poetry was so ancient as is supposed, because he ascribes to a Greek colony circumstances of refinement not found in Greece itself at a later period, when Thucydides wrote. JOHNSON. ""I recollect but one passage quoted by Thucydides from Homer, which is not to be found in our copies of Homer"s works; I am for the antiquity of Homer, and think that a Grecian colony, by being nearer Persia, might be more refined than the mother country.""."
