Seite 101 - I have seen the wicked in great power, And spreading himself like a green bay tree. Yet he passed away— and, lo, he was not ! Yea, I sought him — but he could not be found...
Seite 50 - Thus, although in a very cursory and imperfect manner, I have endeavored to convey to you my conception of the Poetic Principle, It has been my purpose to suggest that, while this principle itself is, strictly and simply, the human aspiration for supernal beauty, the manifestation of the principle is always found in an elevating excitement of the soul, quite independent of that passion which is the intoxication of the heart, or of that truth which is the satisfaction of the reason; for, in regard...
