Byron, Lord - Manfred Act III scene I



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Lord Byron – Manfred act III scene 1 from Complete works

Look on me! there is an order
Of mortals on the earth, who do become
Old in their youth and die ere middle age
Without the violence of warlike death
Some perishing of pleasure – some of study –
Some worn with toil – some of mere weariness
Some of disease – and some insanity –
And some of withered or of broken hearts

The source of the experience

Byron, Lord
