The Pagan World

Matthew Arnold

A beautiful poem. It shows a world obcessed in worldly things, looking for happiness everywhere but within themselves. Although it's written about Rome and her conversion to Christianity, I think it still really applies to us today. We too, living the American dream, need to search our souls. Maybe if we did, our outer world would fall, as the Roman empire did, but we'd be happy and at peace.
