Excerpt from Alexander the Great: A Dramatic Poem

Maturer reflection has led us to the discovery that a fool's luck helping a robber's ambition could hardly have enabled a youth but twenty-two years of age when he. Began his enterprise to conquer half the world in ten years. The ancients made no such mistake. They admired, and therefore they understood. Heroism stood before them, and they could see it; though, with their lights, they could not note its limitations, or appreciate the evil that vitiated the greatness.
