Overview
Excerpt from Harper's Cyclopaedia of British and American Poetry

This is a sign to be welcomed.' True poetry, like the religious prompting itself, springs from the emotional side of man's complex nature, and is ever in harmony with his highest intuitions and aspirations. It cannot be poetry if it conflict with these. Its cultivation, therefore, apart from all calculations of profit or of reputation - since few can now realize their dream of fame - must always be an elevating pursuit. There are some great truths for the expression of which' the speculative understanding is less fitted than that which is the issue of right feelings and noble impulses. That poets have not always practised what they have preached, only shows how hard it is for a man to act up to his best ideals.
