The fact that Beethoven got def, I could first trace the situation on the 13th century
where the crusades took place. In between in the Napoleon invasions (19th
century) and with the religious wars, the composer, one century before, felt
the outcome of poetry by his ears so delicate and he made beautiful music with
his def condition.
Poets are never young, in one sense. Their delicate
ear hears the far-off whispers of eternity, which coarser souls must travel towards
for scores of years.
