Excerpt from The Works of Edward Bulwer Lytton (Lord Lytton), Vol. 7: A Strange Story; The Haunted and the Haunters; The Last of the Barons; Rienzi

If the meaning involved in the argument of which I have here made but scanty extracts be carefully studied, I think that we shall find deeper reasons than the critics who dictated canons of taste to the last century discovered - why the supernatural is indispensable to the Epic, and why it is allowable to all works of imagination, in which Art looks 011 Nature with Man's inner sense of a something beyond and above her.

But the Writer who, whether in verse or prose, would avail himself of such sources of pity or terror as flow from the Marvellous, can only attain his object in proportion as the wonders he narrates are of a kind to excite the curiosity of the age he addresses.
