The person may be forty, fifty, seventy years old - that does not matter, that is the physical age. The Magic of Tone and the Art of Music, by Dane Rudhyar (HTML at ) Critical Reflections on Poetry, Painting and Music; With an Inquiry into the Rise and Progress of the Theatrical Entertainments of the Ancients (3 volumes; London: Printed for J. Nourse, ), by abbé Dubos, trans. by Thomas Nugent.

Written in the early 14th century and completed in , the year of Dante’s death, The Divine Comedy is perhaps the greatest work of epic poetry ever.
