RichesonCarol: Biden always has been a laughingstock, until the news started calling lies the truth. Poet George Crabbe wrote, 200 years ago: “Truth! for whose beauty all their love profess; And yet how many think it ugliness!”

AnecdotalWisdom: When the death in 1832 of the poet George Crabbe was announced, British statesman Lord Melbourne observed, “I am always glad when one of these fellows dies, for then I know I have the whole of him on my shelf.”

BeauwinPolly: I've been reading about an interesting production of Peter Grimes in Vienna. It reminded me of this letter from George Crabbe, on his way home to Aldborough. He's not widely read today, but it was his poem "The Borough" that inspired Britten's opera.

GeorgeMonbiot: Liberated from science, the words can pour out, resonant, stirring, uncompromising, unconstrained by factual accuracy or troubling counterpoints. They excite people, but resolve nothing. As George Crabbe asked in 1783, “Can poets soothe you, when you pine for bread”?

Stay: feed the worms.

And crumbles in a dreary dust of sloth,
