The Bab Ballads - Part 4

By: Various

Poetry

Excerpt: Vast empty shell! // Impertinent, preposterous abortion! // With vacant stare, // And ragged hair, // And every feature out of all proportion! // Embodiment of echoing inanity! // Excellent type of simpering insanity! // Unwieldy, clumsy nightmare of humanity! // I ring thy knell! // To-night thou diest, // Beast that destroy'st my heaven-born identity! // Nine weeks of nights, // Before the lights, // Swamped in thine own preposterous nonentity, // I've been il...

Selections from the Best Poems of 1923

By: Leonard A.G. Strong

Poetry

Excerpt: A Dead Warrior // HERE sown to dust lies one that drave (sic) // The furrow through his heart; // Now, of the fields he died to save // His own dust forms a part. // Where went the tramp of martial feet, // The blare of trumpets loud, // Comes silence with her winding sheet, // And shadow with her shroud. // His mind no longer counsel takes, // No sword his hand need draw, // Across whose borders peace now makes // Inviolable law. // So, with distraction round h...

Prologue to Alice

By: Lewis Carroll

Poetry

Excerpt: ALL in the golden afternoon // Full leisurely we glide; // For both our oars, with little skill, // By little arms are plied, // While little hands make vain pretence // Our wanderings to guide. // Ah, cruel Three! In such an hour // Beneath such dreamy weather, // To beg a tale of breath too weak // To stir the tiniest feather&xclm. // Yet what can one poor voice avail // Against three tongues together? // Imperious Prima flashes forth // Her edict ``to begin i...

The Institutes of the Christian Religion

By: John Calvin

Religion and Christian Theology Collection

Excerpt: It was Calvin preeminently who set the pattern for the exercise of that sobriety which guards the science of exegesis against those distortions and perversions to which allegorizing methods are ever prone to subject the interpretation and application of Scripture. The debt we owe to Calvin in establishing sound canons of interpretation and in thus directing the future course of exegetical study is incalculable. It is only to be lamented that too frequently the p...
