The poem 'On First Looking Into Chapman's Homer' expresses Keat's excitement at being able to access Greek literature through Chapman's translation of these. He feels that he's read widely but the classics of Homer were beyond his understanding till he read Chapman's translation of Greek classics. He uses beautiful similes to describe how he feels. He says he feels like an astronomer who discovers a new planet through his ken and like  the Spanish discoverer Cortez felt when he discovered the pacific ocean.
