I'll post my method here, as I didn't want to do it right in the post:

I acquired text documents of Pope's translations of the two epics in question. From there, it was a simple matter of running a search for "goat." At every instance of the word, I'd copy it down along with the two or three words before and after it. All the lines remain in the order in which they occur in the base texts.

I only cheated once!

I also did one with the King James Bible, but I didn't want to post it here because I'm going to try and publish that baby for reals.

If you know of any other classic texts that rely heavily on a certain word, let me know. Or just do it yourself! It's fun and educational.
