    "The Hermit"

  1. Author: Beattie, James
    Title: "The Hermit"
    Date: 1766
    Genre: poetry
    Note Relating to Cather: Although John March (529) identifies the quotation "night of the grave" as possibly coming from Beattie's lines" "But when shall spring visit the mouldering urn?/O when shall it dawn on the night of the grave?" it might well be attributed to Percy Bysshe Shelley's "Bereavement": Ah, when shall day dawn on the night of the grave,/Or summer succeed to the winter of death?/ Rest awhile, hapless victim! . . . "
