Samenvatting

Excerpt from Hebrew Poetry: Sunday Afternoon Lectures Before the Greensboro Law School
The Influence of Poetry of National Development. The Influence of the Bible on Modern Civilization.
Poetry is an interesting and instructive part of a nation's history, as it is a production of the intellectual and moral faculties, feelings and sentiments of the people.
These faculties, feelings and sentiments arc awakened and intensified, in a great degree, by the spectacles of natural beauty and usefulness presented in the earth, seas and skies, which are produced by the wondrous combinations of physical laws and agencies everywhere evidencing a wisdom, power and goodness, higher, purer and vaster than human intellect and benevolence; and ever lifting the soul in love, adoration and praise to the great Creator and benefactor, and to the immortal life of a higher and more effulgent glory yet to come. In the poetry of a nation we can feel the pulse-throb of national life that shows its healthful development or decay.
In the history of the past we find that a poetic spirit has existed in a more eminent degree in some nations than in others; but among all the higher types of mankind - those races which have exerted a marked influence upon human progress - poetic feeling and sentiment seem to have permeated the entire mass of the population. These feelings and sentiments were imperceptibly formed by the pure aspirations, affections and emotions of man's better nature.
