–Joseph Addison, Spectator 417 (2 June 1712)Reading "A" is like passing a season in an unfamiliar principality where the landscape is so variegated, the prospects so ample and diverse, that one is always encountering a new neighborhood, an undiscovered village, a previously unremarked vista or grotto.
–MS, The Poem of a Life: A Biography of Louis Zukofsky (2007)[To my knowledge, I never read Spectator 417 before happening on this passage yesterday in John Dixon Hunt's The Figure in the Landscape: Poetry, Painting, and Gardening During the Eighteenth Century.]
The horse sees he is repeating
All known cultures
And suspects repeating
Others unknown to him...
