(Sorry, literary comment aimed elsewhere. Link to follow if it works out.)
It was about recent politics that are at once pragmatic, Panglossian, Wildean (?), Dickensian, and Orwellian.
Maybe even Shelleyan (?) as in Frankensteiner (?).
Guess it was aimed here after all:
How rare that a politician slings one worth admiration:
"This is not the best possible bill, it's the best bill possible." -- some USAhole
(bill = legislation)
Ah language.

Q: Is the Iliad hard for a high schooler

Typical Highschooler I am a high schooler and I tried reading Samuel Butler's Iliad by myself and I found it extremely hard to understand. I had a basic idea on what was going on, but lacked understanding of detail. Is it supposed to be this hard?

 
@Randal'Thor yeah, I know, I told myself I wouldn't do that but I still ended up doing it. What can I say? I just can't stand people being wrong on the internet!
 
@BESW , That's a piece of writing that reached my heart.
Asking for clarification that might help filter my outbursts:
Is this site about the craft of writing or the continuing history of it?
 
It's about literature, not composition.
Composition is over here:
Literature is for questions about existing works, not about the creation of new works.
 
Thank you (but they won't).
