Culture

Can rules or tutors educate
The semigod whom we await?
He must be musical,
Tremulous, impressional,
Alive to gentle influence
Of landscape and of sky,
And tender to the spirit-touch
Of man's or maiden's eye:
But, to his native centre fast,
Shall into Future fuse the Past,
And the world's flowing fates in his own mould recast.

by Ralph Waldo Emerson

The demigod of his times is certainly different from the heroes of our times- Rambo and Dirty Harry. One doesn't think of our heroes in terms of sophistication, music, sensitivity, education. ,
Of landscape and sky........So thanks in giving such an opportunity of this great poem of great poet.
