Excerpt from The First Book of the Argonautica

Truth, disordered and oppressed, cannot arise through the impenetrable clouds that environ her: Imagination disdains the cold and lifeless gloom, in which her most attractive fictions, disregarded, would expire.

How different were the first ages of Greece! Truth, partially concealed by the beautiful allegories of poetry, frequently discovers her form, and directs the surmises of History. We almost behold the first colonization of the Grecian coasts; we catch a glance at the inhabitants of the interior parts, living by hunting, and almost perpetually on horseback; we observe the building of the principal cities, and the submission of the people to laws and social order we see the arts gradually arise, and their inventors deified we watch the power of superstition, absorbing the natural piety of the mind, and peopling heaven with objects of terror and veneration' we pursue a train of events, disguised indeed by imagin ation, but in which truth, by being'. Clothed with aston ishment, more easily engages the attention, and is thereby preserved where she would, otherwise, be forgotten.
