Once more, the critic may be affected by really excellent poetry, and yet give a
very bad reason for a just judgment. The ultimate argument about all poetry is
that it is good or bad because it appeals forcibly to the critic's emotions ; that is,

power which it exercises, and yet be unable to assign any good grounds for it.

beautiful work, and in this they differ essentially from all the others,” we find in a
footnote ...
