Seite 76 - The ignorant rustic will, with a vacant stare, attribute it to the giants, or the mighty arch-fiend ; and the antiquary, equally uninformed as to its origin, will regret that its history is veiled in perpetual obscurity. The artist, on viewing these enormous masses, will wonder that art could thus rival nature in magnificence and picturesque effect.
