Description

The need to deify human genius has always existed. It is easy to understand how, in the hearts of many people, the poet has succeeded in replacing the sacred oracles of the ancient gods ' how, in other terms, the religious spirit in the course of its evolution has finished by placing the poet among the saints. But there is more to it than this.' (x)
