Excerpt from The Poetical Works of William Cowper

The life of Cowper is a melancholy chapter in the history of the human mind. But it is_ fraught with interest of a peculiar kind, and when rightly con side1 ed gives rise to a train of reflections which, pain ful as they may be, leave an impression on the mind partaking more of the nature of tranquillized sorrow than of despondency.
