IMITATIONS OF HORACE.

[Of the following Imitations of Horace the first two are rather imitations of Swift, Horace merely supplying the text for the travesty. For (as previous editors lave not failed to point out), no styles could be found less alike one another han the bland and polite style of Horace and the downright, and often cynically plain, manner of Swift. With Pope the attempt to write in Swift's style was a nere tour de force, which he could indeed carry out with success through a few ines, but not further, without relapsing into his own more elaborate manner. Swift's marvellous precision and netteté of expression are something very different rom Pope's pointed and rhetorical elegance. The latter was as ill suited by he Hudibrastic metre patronised by Swift, as was the comic genius of Butler aimself by the wider, but nowise easier, garment of the heroic couplet. As it was Swift, and not Horace, whom Pope imitated in the first two of the following pieces, it is needless to follow Warton into a comparison between them and previous attempts at a real version of Horace. The Ode to Venus, which was first published in 1737, more nearly approaches the character of a translation.]
