NUMBER:7315
AUTHOR:James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
QUOTATION:There comes Emerson first, whose rich words, every one,
Are like gold nails in temples to hang trophies on;
Whose prose is grand verse while his verse the Lord knows
Is some of it pr— No, ’t is not even prose!
ATTRIBUTION:A Fable for Critics.
