    Thumbs down Yet now

    Hi, dear teachers,

    I'm confused. I'm reading a book of Somerset Maugham.

    What does 'yet now' mean in the sentence:

    Yet now few will be found to deny his greatness.

    Now seems is at inappropriate times.

    Best,

    Olga.

    Yet has several meanins. Choose the one that fits.
    1. At this time; for the present: isn't ready yet.
    2. Up to a specified time; thus far: The end had not yet come.
    3. At a future time; eventually: may yet change his mind.
    4. Besides; in addition: returned for yet another helping.
    5. Still more; even: a yet sadder tale.
    6. Nevertheless: young yet wise.
