Excerpt from Cowper

At the age of thirty-two, writing of himself, he says, I am of a very singular temper, and very unlike all the men that I have ever conversed with. Certainly I am not an absolute fool, but I have more weakness than the greatest of all the fools I can recollect at present. In short, if I was as fit for the next world as I am unfit for this - and God forbid I should speak it in vanity - I would not change conditions with any saint in Christendom. Folly produces nothing good, and if Cowper had been an abso lute fool, he would not have written good poetry. But he does not exaggerate his own weakness, and that he should have become a power among men is a remarkable triumph of the influences which have given birth to Christian civil ization.
