Let poets have the privilege and license to die [as they please]. Heindel, and see the trees and skies repeated therein? Let Medea be fierce and untractable, Ino an object of pity, Ixion perfidious, Io wandering, Orestes in distress. Rage armed Archilochus with the iambic of his own invention. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age.

    The sock and the majestic buskin assumed this measure as adapted for dialogue, and to silence the noise of the populace, and calculated for action. For what taste could an unlettered clown and one just dismissed from labors have, when in company with the polite; the base, with the man of honor? She was overcome with grief, which became ever more intense as week after week went without any message from him. Around the age of 8, Wilcox turned to writing poetry as an outlet. What did you learn about writing over the journey of this book? He who is industrious to reach the wished-for goal, has done and suffered much when a boy; he has sweated and shivered with cold; he has abstained from love and wine; he who sings the Pythian strains, was a learner first, and in awe of a master.

    Yet the skies and trees were waiting above to be reflected when the waters grew calm. The attack reoriented her thinking about life, death, and what it means to be human. Whatever you show to me in this manner, not able to give credit to, I detest.

This book gains money for the Sosii; this crosses the sea, and continues to its renowned author a lasting duration. But equally, they could not be more universal. As a transcriber, if he still commits the same fault though he has been reproved, is without excuse; and the harper who always blunders on the same string, is sure to be laughed at; so he who is excessively deficient becomes another Choerilus; whom, when I find him tolerable in two or three places, I wonder at with laughter; and at the same time am I grieved whenever honest Homer grows drowsy?

Around the age of 8, Wilcox turned to writing poetry as an outlet. The following statement expresses Wilcox's unique blending of New Thought, Spiritualism, and a Theosophical belief in reincarnation : "As we think, act, and live here today, we build the structures of our homes in spirit realms after we leave earth, and we build karma for future lives, thousands of years to come, on this earth or other planets.

GradeSaver, 8 May Web. Claudia Reardon says that it goes deeper than that — specific exercises can actually act as effective treatments for specific mental illnesses.

Or should not I rather suppose, that all the world are to see my faults; secure, and cautious [never to err] but with hope of being pardoned? He who joins the instructive with the agreeable, carries off every vote, by delighting and at the same time admonishing the reader.

Mortal works must perish: much less can the honor and elegance of language be long-lived. The idea of death left him candidly stunned, blinking in terror; he had nothing useful to say about it.

Ye who write, make choice of a subject suitable to your abilities; and revolve in your thoughts a considerable time what your strength declines, and what it is able to support.

The avoiding of an error leads to a fault, if it lack skill. Let the chorus sustain the part and manly character of an actor: nor let them sing any thing between the acts which is not conducive to, and fitly coherent with, the main design. Homer has instructed us in what measure the achievements of kings, and chiefs, and direful war might be written.

The beardless youth, his guardian being at length discharged, joys in horses, and dogs, and the verdure of the sunny Campus Martius; pliable as wax to the bent of vice, rough to advisers, a slow provider of useful things, prodigal of his money, high-spirited, and amorous, and hasty in deserting the objects of his passion.
