Excerpt
Excerpt: Several years ago, when the Author retired to his native mountains with the hope of being enabled to construct a literary work that might live, it was a reasonable thing that he should take a review of his own mind, and examine how far Nature and Education had qualified him for such an employment. ?As subsidiary to this preparation, he undertook to record, in verse, the origin and progress of his own powers, as far as he was acquainted with them. ?That work, addressed to a dear friend, most distinguished for his knowledge and genius, and to whom the Author?s intellect is deeply indebted, has been long finished; and the result of the investigation which gave rise to it, was a determination to compose a philosophical Poem, containing views of Man, Nature, and Society, and to be entitled the ?Recluse?; as having for its principal subject the sensations and opinions of a poet living in retirement.
