But his poems of extraordinary worth are exceedingly few —scarcely above a score at most—in which must be included the earlier lines To Helen, Israfel, The city in the sea, the Sleeper, The Haunted Palace, Dream-Land, The Raven, Ulalume, For Annie, and Annabel Lee.

His total blindness in 1906 he bore with equanimity until his death in 1909. His career reveals the character of his mind. He was detached from life and sought to pierce below its aspects to the soul beneath. ntains of North Carolina, where he died 7 September. What shall be said of the product of this eager and varied effort? Shall we lament the incompleteness and immaturity of a life fourteen years longer than Keats's and ten years longer than Shelley's? Shall we bemoan the constant battle with disease, which yet left to Stevenson the energy for an exquisitely wrought style? Shall we bewail the hard necessity of winning his daily bread in a land devastated by civil war and depressed by corru
