A philosopher-logician might explain to us that the Titanic came to be what it was and where it was by way of countless causal series. The same thing may, of course, be said of the iceberg to which in our imaginations it is forever wedded. But accident may be defined as thecasual intersection of causal series, and in this book of early critical writings by William Heyen we may hear the scrapings of ice on steel, the band playing on the doomed deck, may follow the plunge of mind into ocean as he reads dozens of the poets of our works and days.
