Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Romance of Natural History There are more ways than one of studying natural history. There is Dr. Dryasdust s way; which consists of mere accuracy of definition and differentiation; statistics as harsh and dry as the skins and bones in the museum where it is studied. There is the field-observer s way; the careful and conscientious accumulation and record of facts bearing on the life-history of the creatures; statistics as fresh and bright as the forest or meadow where they are gathered in the dewy morning. And there is the poet s way; who looks at nature through a glass peculiarly his own; the aesthetic aspect, which deals, not with statistics, but with the emotions of the human mind, - surprise, wonder, terror, revulsion, admiration, love, desire, and so forth, - which are made energetic by the contemplation of the creatures around him. In my many years wanderings through the wide field of natural history, I have always felt towards it something of a poet s heart, though destitute of a poet s genius. As Wordsworth so beautifully says, - To me the meanest flower that blows can give Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears. Now, this book is an attempt to present natural history in its aesthetic fashion. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
