Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Mona's Isle: And Other Poems

The chief Poem in this Volume is merely a Sketch of the Natural Beauties of the Isle of Man. The historical portions are gleaned from the works of Sacheverell, Oswald, Camden, and Waldron. The Author is fully sensible of his inability to do justice to the enchanting Scenery of Mona. Painters and Sculptors can, at best, but produce a faint resemblance to Nature. Claude's landscapes, however rich in colouring and beauty, are but mockeries, contrasted with reality - the marble, moulded into exquisite proportions by the genius of canova, lacks the quintessence of all things - life. The Artist may deceive the eye with colours dipt in heaven, but his bouquet is without perfume. So the Poet must fail, who would presume (with imagery) to convey to the mind the unapproachable splendour of Nature - whether in her aspect of Grandeur, or in the more simple and delicate objects that move, or breathe fragrance, beneath her magic wand. Although the human heart mayifeel the enchantment connected with the sublime or beautiful, the lips are sealed, and the hand is powerless.
