About the Author
Jean de Sponde born in 1557, was a French poet, translator, humanist, jurist, and Hellenist. His translations of Homer, Homeri Poemarum Versio Latina, were used by Chapman and he also published a scholarly edition of La Logique d'Aristotle. De Sponde became a Catholic late in life after leading quite a reckless life at the court of Henry IV. He died destitute in Bordeaux, France in 1595.
