Excerpt from A Companion to the Iliad: For English Readers The last few years have caused some not unnatural disquietude to those who are interested in the future of classical studies in England. A serious attack, led by some of the ablest men engaged in teaching, alike in schools and universities, has been delivered upon the place which Greek now holds in the established course of English education. It appears to have failed for the present; but none the less it has revealed the existence of a body of opinion at once powerful in reputation and influential in position; it is likely enough that it may be repeated at no distant date with overwhelming forces. If the success of this attack meant, as many or perhaps most now think, a total divorce of modern and ancient literature, it would surely be deplorable. But to believe such a divorce possible argues a weak faith in the intrinsic vitality of Greek letters. Their union with our modern thought is indissoluble, because it is based on a long historical growth, and because those who would study English literature find themselves forced to study Greek - Greek literature at least, if not the Greek language.
