Excerpt from Poems, Narrative and Lyrical: Required for College Entrance
The history of the world must be interpreted in terms of personality for it is through the lives of great men that great events are revealed. In the crises of history, periods of revolt against a low conception of God and man, - from the time of Job and Prometheus, to that of Newman and Arnold, men have arisen whose trumpet notes have been a call to more seri ous thought and more determined action. They have been misunderstood in proportion as their message was a summons to sacrifice cherished ideas and habitual modes of action 5 but time, the great revealer of truth, has evolved reverent criticism which on its moral side is a study of conduct, and on its aes thetic a perception of beauty. A right perspective is thus attained by which justice, though late, is done to the past.
