Wozu Dichter?

The everlasting universe of things
Flows through the mind, and rolls its rapid waves,
Now dark -- now glittering -- now reflecting gloom --
Now lending splendour, where from secret springs
The source of human thought its tribute brings

Mont Blanc, Shelly
A talented lad, tho' reading Mont Blanc closely, one realizes PBS doesn't really affirm platonism (as is typically assumed), at least of the other-worldly, idealist sort. His views seem, if you allow a conjecture, slightly spinozaistic (for better or worse). Shelley reportedly signed the register in Chamonix as ...a-theos.
