“A great poem is a fountain forever overflowing with
the waters of wisdom and delight; and after one person
and one age have exhausted all its divine effluence, which
their peculiar relations enable them to share, another
and yet another succeeds, and new relations are ever
developed, the source of an unforeseen and an un-
conceived delight."-SHELLEY, A Defense of Poetry.
