War that begins in Man in nations endsTo an appointed purpose. It is this:That image of the evil in themselvesMay grow to such proportionate extremeAs to affront with horror of their sinThe souls of unimaginative men.Thus forced they see the purpose of a lawIn which they act the whole in several parts,Accused, accuser, witnesses and judge;Plead the offence that they have suffered from;Accuse themselves of what themselves have done;Bear witness both to punishment and crime;And from the judgment seat of their own deedsGive sentence against witness, judge, and all.
