Excerpt from Poems, Dialogues in Verse, and Epigrams, Vol. 1 of 2: Dramatic Scenes

But with his verse the case is different. Lines there are in his poems, and even long passages, written with a pen cut from an eagle's feather. But in too many cases the ink has flowed from a humbler quill. He never attained that mastery over verse, which would have made it an instrument fit to express all his thoughts and fancies; for the aptest utterance of his graver and more majestic thoughts the reader must turn to Landor's prose. He was not unaware of this himself. In his prose works there are many passages which show the pride he took in his command of language. Many men have said with Horace, exegi monumz'm'um aere perelzniur. Few have expressed that conviction as majestically as Landor. What I write, he says in one place, is not written on slate; and no finger, not that of Time himself, who dips it in the mist of years, can efface it. But of his verse he never speaks so confidently. He ranked himself as the best Of living prose writers, but in poetry he felt that there were men living who were his masters. He speaks with indifference of men who borrowed from his prose; he bitterly resented what he believed to be a theft from Gebir, committed by Wordsworth. In a man of Landor's temper this is no small indication that in his inmost heart he mistrusted his success as a poet.
