Poems Dedicated to National Independence and Liberty: Reprinted on Behalf of the Greek Struggle for the Independence of Crete (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Poems Dedicated to National Independence and Liberty: Reprinted on Behalf of the Greek Struggle for the Independence of Crete
There is scarcely one of them which has not some application to the present day; to the position in which England has been placed before Europe and before her own past history; to the struggle of the Cretans against a merciless and intolerable tyranny; to the bold, if despairing remonstrance of Greece, and to' the very remarkable conduct of the English Government, which has at last, as I write, ended in producing the war it desired to avoid; and which the despotic Powers, in pretended concert with her, may have desired to create.
