In Praise of Poetry.
The old hymn says: "Religion never
was designed to make our pleasures
less," and the same thing ought to be
said about poetry. The distaste for
poetry arises from the habit of treat
ing lt aa if lt were only a more diffi
cult kind of prose. . . . The pro
saic commentary obscures the beaut/
of the' text.-C. M. Crothers.
