An Exhortation Analysis

Author: poem of Percy Bysshe Shelley Type: poem Views: 14

Chameleons feed on light and air:

Poets' food is love and fame:

If in this wide world of care

Poets could but find the same

With as little toil as they,

Would they ever change their hue

As the light chameleons do,

Suiting it to every ray

Twenty times a day?

Poets are on this cold earth,

As chameleons might be,

Hidden from their early birth

In a cave beneath the sea;

Where light is, chameleons change:

Where love is not, poets do:

Fame is love disguised: if few

Find either, never think it strange

That poets range.

Yet dare not stain with wealth or power

A poet's free and heavenly mind:

If bright chameleons should devour

Any food but beams and wind,

They would grow as earthly soon

As their brother lizards are.

Children of a sunnier star,

Spirits from beyond the moon,

O, refuse the boon!

I didn't know about this film. Thank you for the post. I believe the film, "Mansfield Park" which was ditcered by Patricia Rozema was excellent. I think she really did Jane Austen justice and hope she'll direct another period piece.

The images are just loevly! I can't wait to see it too. I got excited when I saw it on the Movie show on ABC cause I thought it was already released. But no.I am quite interested too. Ever since high school and La Belle Dame Sans Merci. Cliche, I know, but so romantic.I want to catch up on my 'to read' list, and he is on the list. I really should be studying literature as well. Oh, and I didn't know that P. B. Shelley died with a Keats poetry book in his pocket. Beautiful.I finished for the semester and if my relief is at least 5% of what you feel, then you must be feeling pretty good! x x

, there are good reasons to think that God deresis that inter-action and answers prayers, etc.Ok, let's skip to the most serious: If he is immovable, by what right do we pretend to make him change his decrees? This was something like Aristotle's objection to prayer, and it has been addressed recently by Pope Benedict XVI pretty brilliantly. In any case, I won't appeal to his answer, as it is a little too sophisticated for this forum. Instead, I can just explain that God's being metaphysically immovable doesn't prevent prayer from being causally efficacious if God is outside of Time, seeing as at time t1 God relates to the world in such a way that he will not realize X', whereas at some other time, call it t2, God relates to the world differently such that he will realize X' not because God has changed, but because the world has changed in some relevant way insofar as God actualizing X' is concerned. In one sense, C.S. Lewis had it right when he said that prayer changes us, not God, and it is only in terms of anthropomorphic tropes that we can say prayer can change God'. Oh, and I can't resist: If the knowledge of a God is the most necessary, why is it not the most evident and the clearest? it seems to me Leibniz, Bonaventure, Anselm, Augustine, etc were right it is the most evident. Aquinas was also right that just because it is self-evident doesn't mean it is evident to people who don't yet have their head properly wrapped around the idea.

that my assumption was that pelpoe were familiar with these arguments or else could, without considerable difficulty, become familiar with them if they had bothered to look for them. However, again, I've apologized for this passing remark which wasn't careful on my part I should have either given sources, or else not said anything, and I certainly should not have assumed familiarity with these arguments I had in mind, as most pelpoe, especially on blogs such as this, haven't a clue, and that's fair enough. Also; Your continued and thinly veiled condescension is not particularly appreciated. I apologize, I have been condescending in part, and this is probably thanks to my frustration with pelpoe who cannot take good arguments seriously. Perhaps this will be one of the last times I post on this blog I'm tired of encountering rude and arrogant interlocutors who are constantly dismissive of me, as though my intelligence were significantly inferior to theirs. I put a lot of work into my positions philosophically and theologically, and I treat comments, such as the one we're currently commenting on in this thread, as serious statements which deserve attention. I apologize to you if I have seemed condescending to you though there can be no excuse for this behavior, do you think perhaps you might have made my time easier if you were not so dismissive? That's just a thought, and NOT a criticism of you. I hope in future that if you decide to respond again, and continue conversation with me, the tone of it might be more cordial.If Benedict's treatment wasn't found to be convincing, then that's interesting to me, I should perhaps re-read him and then ask you for your careful criticisms, so that I can think about it, and perhaps it would make good inspiration for a future blog-post of mine. However, I do think he's right that Aristotle's objection is a great candidate for the most serious objection to the efficacy of prayer in the history of philosophy.Concerning the Temple remark, that's fair enough.Concerning prayer if God did not exist I should have said:“However, it seems to me that you are right to say that even if God doesn’t exist it might be healthy to pray according to the logic of my position.”Oh, finally, I simply cannot let this one go as a point of philosophy that a triangle's angles add up to 180 degrees is not something known by empirical observation, or even if it is it isn't the kind of thing which requires empirical observation. Man can come to know this once they understand adequately what a triangle is by rational intuition, in just the same way that they can realize that a triangle has three angles. In this debate between Empiricists (like Hume) and Rationalists (like Leibniz) I side with the rationalists; I think some things are discoverable by the human mind through intuition, and they do not arise' from experience alone, or experience in the strictest sense. However, I'd have to explain Rationalism to you to make that make sense Are you well read at all on this controversy, or have you ever spent time studying the Rationalist philosophers (Malebranche, Anne Conway, Leibniz, Spinoza, Descartes, Henry More, etc)?
