On First Looking Into Chapman's Homer Awe and Amazement Quotes
How we cite our quotes:
Silent, upon a peak in Darien. (14)
Moments of awe and amazement happen most often when you experience something alone, separated from others and silent. Awe is total presence. That's what Keats feels with Chapman and what Cortez/Balboa felt on that mountaintop.
