Abstract

...But this sonnet immortalizes an aspect, perhaps only an insignificant aspect of that age; yet its greatness lies less in its subject, which is hardly a universal one, which is, in fact, little more than the angered outburst of a passing moment, than in the splendour and rolling grandeur of its words. Who can show a finer example of "emotion recollected in tranquility?"
