    Excerpt from The Household Poetry Book: An Anthology of English-Speaking Poets From Chaucer to Faber

    A greater error there can hardly be than that which regards poetry as an art conducive to pleasure only, or, at best, but to intellectual cultivation. Had it no higher function, it would but little deserve to be, what it has so often proved, the delight of youth, the inspiring companion of manhood, and the solace of age -it could never have attained that high place which has belonged to it, as one of the most in¿uential powers for the education of the human race. Poetry may, indeed, be de graded and very commonly the depth of the degradation is in proportion to the original height of what has thus been brought low - painting, sculpture, and architecture, kindred arts, which work with inferior materials and within a narrower range, too often have been corrupted by the same malignant in¿uences. But the effect of such degradation is ever the withdrawal of a gift sent to strengthen the human heart and to elevate human action; while the cause of it is to be found mainly in a low or a false estimate of that which has thus been shorn of its duties and functions.
