Poetry: December 2006 Archives

From an Essay on Criticism


A little learning is a dangerous thing;
Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring;
There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely sobers us again.
In fearless youth we tempt the heights of Arts,
While from the bounded level of our mind
Short views we take, nor see the lengths behind
But more advanced, behold with strange surprise
New distant scenes of endless science rise!

-Alexander Pope
