Thatha I am reading "The Solitude of Alexander Selkirk" by W.Cowper.
Reading some notes, I find that Alexander Selkirk was a real head long man and wanted to remain in an Island where there is no humanity.
The poem begins "I am monarch of all I survey" It is nice to be in solitude for some time not for long...that is what the poem tells.
He questions the sages who say that 'solitude' is charming. Really 'solitude is not charming.
Better dwell in the midst of alarms, Than reign in this horrible place. Solitude - No!
