Excerpt from Seen and Heard: Poems or the Like
Though prevented by this double deprivation from repairing by study the defects of a very imperfect school education, he has been able to acquire large and varied information by intercourse with intelligent persons, while such in... tercourse was still possible, and by the exercise of vigorous powers of re¿ection. NO one know ing the facts, and reading the vivid and picturesque bits of de scription in his writings, can fail to be struck with the keenness of his perceptive faculties, before clouded by what he pathetically calls the double night of darkness and silence.
