The following are quotes on Homer:

Homer, like most of the Greeks, is thought to have travelled into Egypt, and brought from the Priests there, not only their learning, but their manner of conveying it in fables, and by hieroglyphics. This is necessary to be considered by those who would thoroughly penetrate into the beauty and design of many parts of this author: for whoever reflects that this was the mode of learning in those times, will make no doubt but there are many mysteries both of natural and moral philosophy involved in his fictions, which otherwise in the literal meaning appear too trivial or irrational; and it is but just, when these are not plain or immediately intelligible, to imagine that something of this kind may be hid under them.”
Alexander Pope (1720), The Iliad of Homer (§8) [1]
Hesiod and Homer, and all the wise men of Greece, travelled into Egypt, or gathered from thence their learning and wisdom, history everywhere attests. Thales and Pythagoras were amongst the last of the Greek philosophers, who had the advantage of the Egyptian wisdom, before the most savage and inconsiderate of all conquerors, Cambyses, the son of Cyrus, had laid waste the country.”
— John Taylor (1852), Salt Abstinence (pg. 13)[1]
