Holt, (Sir JOHN,) an eminent English judge, born at
Thame in December, 1642, was entered at Gray's Inn in
1658, and called to the bar in 1663. Having become
eminent in his profession, he was chosen recorder of
London; but for his firm opposition to the despotic
measures of James II. he was removed. He distin-
guished himself in the Convention Parliament of 1688,
and at the accession of William III. was appointed lord
chief justice of the king's bench in 1689. In 1700 he
declined the office of lord chancellor. He performed
the duties of chief justice with wisdom, honour, and
courage, until the end of his life. " His name," says
Mackintosh, " never can be pronounced without venera-
tion as long as wisdom and integrity are revered among
men." Died in 1709.

Home, (DAVID.) See HUME.

Home, (DAVID,) a Scottish Protestant minister, who
lived in France during the reign of James I. of Eng-
land. He wrote "Apologia Basilica," (1626.)

Home, (Sir EVERARD,) an eminent Scottish surgeon,
born in the county of Berwick in 1756, studied medicine
with his brother-m-law, the celebrated John Hunter.
He practised in London with distinction, and was presi-
dent of the Royal College of Surgeons. He published
" Lectures on Comparative Anatomy," and other pro-
fessional works. Died in 1832.

Home, (HENRY,) Lord Kames, a Scottish judge, born
at Kames m 1696, was called to the Edinburgh bar in
1724. After publishing several legal treatises, which
were well received, he was appointed in 1752 a judge of
the court of sessions, and took the title of Lord Kames.
In 1758 he wrote a valuable work, entitled " Historical
Law Tracts." His greatest work, " Elements of Criti-
cism," (1762,) was regarded by some as an admirable per-
formance, and is highly commended by Dugald Stewart
Dr. Johnson said, "The Scotchman has taken the right
method in his ' Elements of Criticism.' " He was ap-
pointed one of the lords of justiciary in 1763. Died in 1782.

Home," i8of-io, a vols. ; WILLIAM SMELLIE, "Life of Lord
K.vnes," 1800 : CHAMBERS, " Biographical Dictionary of Eminent
Scotsmen."

Home or Hume, (JoHN,) a popular Scottish drama-
tist, born at Ancrum in 1724. He was licensed to preach
in 1747, and settled at Athelstaneford. In 1756 he
became at once distinguished by the publication of his
"Tragedy of Douglas," which was performed first at Edin-
burgh with unbounded applause, and is still very popular
on the stage. " I think nobody can bestow too much praise
on Douglas," says Professor Wilson. " There has been
no English tragedy worthy of the name since it ap-
peared." It rendered the author so obnoxious to the
elders of the Kirk that he retired from the ministry.
He was patronized by the Earl of Bute, who procured
him a pension of 300. Home wrote several other
dramas, much inferior to "Douglas," and a " History of
the Rebellion in 1745." Mrs. Siddons once said "she
never found any study [which, in the technical language
of the stage, means the getting verses by heart] so easy
as that of Douglas." Died in 1808.

the reputed author of the two great epics the " Iliad" ana
the " Odyssey," and the most celebrated poet that ever
lived, is generally supposed to have been born at Smyrna,
or Chios, t (Scio,) and to have flourished about one thou-
sand years before the Christian era ; but both the place
and the century of his birth are involved in the greatest
uncertainty. The best ancient authorities, including
Aristotle and Aristarchus, represent him as contemporary
with the Ionian migration which occurred about one
hundred and forty years after the Trojan war. Of the
two great poems above named, the " Iliad" has been
aptly called " the beginning of all literature." In the
opinion, indeed, of the greatest critics of antiquity, it was

t If the weight of authorities is m favour of Smyrna, the greater
umber would seem to be on the side of Chios. (See Smith's " Clas-
sical Dictionary.") Byron appears to give the preference to the lat-
ter ; for he calls Homer

"The blind old man of Scio's rocky isle."

Bride of Abytfos, canto ii

It has been suggested (and it seems highly probable) that Homer,
though born at Smyrna, may have afterwards removed to Chios,
where his family, or a branch of it, (the Homeridje,) are said to have
Hired for several generations. Seven different cities are said to have
disputed for the honour of having given birth to Homer, as expressed
m the following couplet by Antipater of Sidon :

not only the beginning, but the end ; it was not merely
the first attempt at the production of a great poem, but
the faultless model which excited alike the admiration and
despair of all succeeding poets. In the words of Aris-

" Hie omnes sine dubio," says Quintilian, "in i mini genere
eloquentiae procul a se reliquit" Some other ancient
writers speak in even stronger terms of praise.

Among the ancients, none appears ever to have doubted
that Homer was a real personage, and that he was the
author of the most wonderful poem of antiquity, (the
" Iliad.") But before or about the time of the Christian
era there was a class of critics who denied that the
" Iliad" and " Odyssey" were the productions of the same
author. They were called Xupi'sovrff, or " Separators."
It cannot be denied that there is a remarkable difference
between those works, not in one or two points only, but
in several important respects. Perhaps the most striking
difference is that which exists in respect to the character
of the gods in the two poems. The gods of the " Iliad"
are completely human in their character, unless it be
that they have more than human foibles or vices. They
are capricious and selfish, and seldom, if ever, show
much regard for justice. The deities of the " Odyssey"
appear as the rewarders of merit and the avengers of
sin or crime. There is, moreover, a marked difference
in the spirit or tone of the two poems. To explain this
difference, Longinus tells us that the " Iliad" was com-
posed by Homer when he was in the vigour of life, while
the " Odyssey" was the production of his old age.

Modern critics had seemed disposed to leave the ques-
tion of Homer's age and the authorship of the Homeric
poems very much where they had been left by the writers
of antiquity, until a little before the close of the last cen-
tury, when F. A. Wolf startled the world by announcing
a new theory respecting the Homeric poems, (1795.) He
maintained that, as writing was not in use among the
Greeks until long after the time in which those poems
must have been composed, it would have been wholly
impossible for an^r poet, however great his genius, to
compose and retain in memory even one such work as
the "Iliad" or "Odyssey." For this and other reasons,
he concludes that the two great epics which go under the
name of Homer were really produced by a number of
different authors, and that these separate productions
were, after the introduction of the art of writing, thrown
together as they happened to fit, so as to form a continu-
ous whole. The inconclusiveness, not to say absurdity,
of such a train of reasoning must, we think, be obvious
to every unbiassed mind. We meet, even now, with
persons who by two or three perusals can commit to
memory the whole of such a poem as the " Lady of the
Lake." " Who can determine," says Miiller, " how
many thousand verses one thoroughly filled with his sub-
ject . . . might produce in a year and confide to the
faithful memory of disciples devoted to their master and
his art ?" When we take into consideration the fact
that the mental activity of the ancients, instead of being
divided and diluted among an endless variety of studies
or pursuits, was concentrated and constantly exercised
on a comparatively few, the retaining of even two such
works as the " Iliad" and " Odyssey" will not, perhaps,
seem more incredible than many feats of memory which
are known to have been performed in modern times.
Nor must it be forgotten that the poetry of Homer, unlike
that of many of our great modern poets, is, generally
speaking, remarkable for the simplicity and directness of
its language ; and these qualities, added to the marvellous
facility and animation of the narrative, render the verse
extremely easy to be learned and retained in memory.

The consummate art with which the various parts of
the " Iliad" (though sometimes seemingly disconnected)
are arranged and adapted so as to delay the denouement
and yet to heighten the interest till near the very end,
proves the poem to have been, beyond all reasonable
doubt, the work of one master-mind. But this master-
mind may very probably have used materials prepared

sion) and in thought"

J " In every kind of eloquence he undoubtedly has left all [others]
far behind him."

(or him by preceding poets, just as the consummate
architect, when erecting an edifice designed to be the
admiration of all coming time, may avail himself of the
materials, and, for subordinate parts of the building, even
of the designs, furnished by inferior workmen. There
seem, indeed, to be strong reasons for believing that
before the time of Homer there existed many poems
treating of the events of the Trojan war, and that he, in
selecting and combining the facts necessary to the plot
>f his great work, occasionally adopted some of the finest
l_ies of his predecessors, at the same time changing or
adapting others to suit his purpose, so as to give the
whole poem the impress of his matchless skill and tran-
scendent genius. This supposition will perhaps best
explain the introduction into the poem of such a great
variety of words or phrases differing in different parts of
the work, as well as the marked diversity of dialects. It
is well known that Shakspeare used freely, in some of
his historic dramas, not only the ideas, but, in repeated
instances, the very lines, of some of the poets that had
gone before him. At other times he appears to have
adopted some of the leading ideas, and perhaps many
of the expressions, of previous dramatists, and yet to
have so cast them into the mould of his own mind, and so
coloured them with the hues of his wonderful imagina-
tion, that he may be said to have surpassed the fabled
achievements of the alchemists, and transmuted his crude
materials into something far more precious than gold.

But, while we claim it as a point established, that the
" Iliad" is virtually and essentially the production of a
single poet, we must admit that the question is still un-
decided whether the same Homer was also the author
of the "Odyssey." "If," says the learned and accom-
plished critic already quoted, "the completion of the
1 Iliad' and ' Odyssey' seems too vast a work for one
man, we may perhaps have recourse to the supposition
that Homer, after having sung the ' Iliad' in the vigour of
his youthful years, in his old age communicated to some
devoted disciple the plan of the ' Odyssey,' which had long
been working in his mind, and left it to him for comple-
tion." (K. ( ). Miiller's " History of Greek Literature.")
The prevailing belief that Homer was blind appears to
have taken its origin from one of the so-called Homeric
hymns addressed to the Delian Apollo, the author of
which calls himself the blind poet who lived in rocky
Chios. The hymn in question was considered by some
of the most judicious of the ancient writers to be the
p. oduction of Homer himself; but this view is not ac-
cepted by the best modern critics. The wonderful accu-
racy of many of the descriptions in the "Iliad" utterly
precludes the idea of their having been written by a
poet who had not himself been an eye-witness of the
scenes which he paints so admirably. But he might, per-
haps, have described in his blind old age scenes which
had been indelibly stamped upon his memory in youth
jr early manhood. (See, on the various questions con-
nected with the Homeric poems, Colonel W. Mure's
"Critical History of the Literature, etc. of Ancient
Greece," (1850,) and the able article on " Homerus," in
Smith's " Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography.")
