Extraordinary Discourse 411


Purloined Poetic Polemics






No sooner had the Snake beheld this reverend figure, than the King began to speak, and asked: "Whence comest thou?" "From the chasms where the gold dwells," said the Snake. "What is grander than gold?" inquired the King. "Light," replied the Snake. "What is more refreshing than light?" said he.

"Speech," answered she.
Goethe
