Excerpt from Letters of Edward Dowden and His Correspondents Upon him, he had been tempted to sacrifice everything to it. One has a feeling of regret now, in reading his collected poems, which contain such beautiful and interesting things as La revelation par le desert, his various sonnet-sequences, etc., that one did not make more of them while he lived, for it is certain that academic or mundane honours were as nothing to him in comparison with recognition as a poet. The poet in Dowden was the secret of his personal distinction it was the secret also of that strange humility of his, for he hardly valued himself at all on the possession of those faculties for which the world in his case found most use his aptitude for mere book - learning, for instance, of which he says in his letters, Somehow I have acquired a lot of wholly useless knowledge and can't get rid of it. The creative faculty was what he valued and his instinct for recognising it, which enabled him to contribute to literature so large a body of most helpful criticism, was derived from the poet in himself.
