Iona, a Lay of Ancient Greece (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Iona, a Lay of Ancient GreeceIT has been said of late by some with a feeling of sadness and regret, that the poetic spirit has ¿ed that the poetic temperament is submerged in the hurrying ¿ood of new ideas of progress and needs of man and is cooled in the icy stream which ¿ows from the fountain of scientific truth, that all mystery is of the past, and that man, having subdued the forces of nature, and made them subservient to his will, finds them no longer mysterious, that the whitened bones in the newly opened sepulchres reveal the truth that death is the end of life, while man grows like the grass in the fields, fulfils the purposes of his existence unknown to himself, and is as surely cut down by the stroke of time, to rise no more that nature no longer reveals to us a hidden Creator, and that the sighing winds, the moaning ocean, the rustling grasses, and shaking leaves, the pattering raindrops, and the babbling, restless brooks, need no longer thrill our beings with either joy or sadness, as these feelings are but sensations produced in our organic tissues, with the disintegration of which, ends all aspiration, all hope, all delight, all life, that soul is but sense, and spirit but a figment of the imagination.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
