This is interesting:

Look at quote #20

Strangely familiar, isn't it?

I never once realised how much of Chapman Keats was familiar with, and not at least to use his words in his own epitaph.

It just goes to show, F Scott Fitzgerald was right: writers never waste anything.

BTW, has anyone read Chapman's translation of Homer? Looking at it on Bartleby, it's so elegant & remeniscent of Shakespeare, don't you think?
