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)

    Nothing is poetical if plain daylight is not poetical; and no monster should amaze us if the normal man does not amaze.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    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)
