Thomas Love Peacock

Thomas Love Peacock

English author, best known for his humorous short novels
My steps have pressed the flowers,
That to the Muses' bowers
The eternal dews of Helicon have given:
And trod the mountain height,
Where Science, young and bright,
Scans with poetic gaze the midnight-heaven.
Yet have I found no power to vie
With thine, severe necessity! /necessity/ Thomas Love Peacock quotes
