“I go into my library and all history unrolls before me.” Alexander Smith

Alexander Smith was a 19th Century Scottish “spasmodic” poet* and essayist.

*”The spasmodic poets was a group of British poets of the Victorian era. The term was coined by William Edmonstoune Aytoun with some derogatory as well as humorous intention. The epithet itself is attributed, by Thomas Carlyle, to Lord Byron. Spasmodic poetry frequently took the form of verse drama, the protagonist of which was often a poet.”  Source:  Wikipedia

Speaking of history, if you are a teacher or know a teacher, I had an idea for teaching history in a fun way that might interest you:  Captured from History.
