Excerpt from The Dream of Gerontius
The Dream of Gerontin: was the true copestone for Newman to cut and to lay on the literary and religious work of his whole life. Had Dante himself composed The Dream of Gerontin: as his elegy on the death of some beloved friend, it would ha... ve been universally received as altogether worthy of his superb genius, and it would have been a jewel altogether worthy of his peerless crown. There is nothing of its kind outside of the Pnrgatorio and the Paradiro at all equal to the Gerontiu: for solemnising, ennobling, and sanctifying power. It is a poem that every man should have by heart who has it before him to die.
