Famous quotes containing the word poetical:

    The death ... of a beautiful woman, is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    His character as one of the fathers of the English language would alone make his works important, even those which have little poetical merit. He was as simple as Wordsworth in preferring his homely but vigorous Saxon tongue, when it was neglected by the court, and had not yet attained to the dignity of a literature, and rendered a similar service to his country to that which Dante rendered to Italy.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    We are not concerned about the historical truth of this, but rather a higher poetical truth. We seem to hear the music of a thought, and care not if the understanding be not gratified.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
