English commentary: ON A TALK ON SPINOZA
Durant spoke of Spinoza yesterday
And I sat listening, feeling, mediating,
And now and ever afterwards will feel
And live and think more deeply than before,
For having heard Durant speak of Spinoza.
Spinoza! what a mighty, mighty name!
All Alexanders, Caesars and Napoleons -
Mere specks of dust upon a polished lens,
Compared to this poor polisher of lenses,
He polished lenses for myoptic eyes; ...
The World's myoptic eyes have need of them -
And long will need them - poor myoptic world.
My own sight seems improved since I heard
Durant speak of Spinoza yesterday.
(Adolf Wolff)
