Reading old poetry

| 1 Comment

From there I was moved to read some Coleridge. (Since the big crash, I tell everyone to back up their data, and a friend today compared me to the ancient mariner.) And then for fun I found some A.E. Housman, in order to read the lines surrounding the old favorites:

...malt does more than Milton can
to justify God's ways to man.

(And if I'd had beer and not coffee after dinner, I'd be asleep by now...)

I don't know... Wish I could be of more help. I generally turn to a reference librarian with questions like this, after the web resources come up empty. They have ways of finding out all kinds of things.
