ADITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES/NOTAS BIOGRÁFICAS ADICIONAIS:
WILLIAM JULIUS MICKLE (1735-1788) b. in Scotland, at the age of 38 left his home town where he was a brewery owner for the life of a oet in London. There, he spent five years translating the Lusiads --what can be considered his chief contribution to literature. The importance of Mickles Lusiads may be seen, then, partly as extending knowledge of Camões great work, partly as illustrating problems of mixed mythological mode in modern epic, and partly as showing how Greek, Christian, Islamic and Indic religions and mythologies were beginning to come into discernible relations to each other, demanding same sort of comparative treatment.
