Luce writes this mission statement, "To see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events; to watch the faces of the poor and the gestures of the proud; to see strange things -- machines, armies, multitudes, shadows in the jungle and on the moon; to see man's work -- his paintings, towers and discoveries; to see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to; the women men love and many children; to see and to take pleasure in seeing; to see and be amazed; to see and be instructed...."

In such poor wretches Weeds as these, was Poetry clothed during those shades of Ignorance that over-spread Europe, for so many Ages after the Sun-set of the Roman Learning and Empire together, which were succeeded by so so many New Dominons, or Plantations of the Gothick Swarms, and by a New Face of Customs, Habit, Language, and almost of Nature; But upon the dawn of a New Day, and the Resurrection of other Sciences, with the Two Learned Languages among us, This of Poetry began to appear very early, tho' very unlike it self, and in shapes as well as Cloaths, in Humor and in Spirit very different from the Antient. It was now all in Rhyme, after the Gothick Fashion, for indeed none of the several Dialects of that Language or Allay, would bear the Composure of such Feet and Measures, as were in use among the Greeks and Latins, and some that attempted it, soon left it off, despairing of Success. Yet in this New Dress, Poetry was not without some Charms, especially those of Grace and Sweetness, and the Oar begun to shine in the Hands and Works of the first Refiners. Petrarch, Ronsard, Spencer, met with much Applause upon the Subjects of Love, Praise, Grief, Reproach. Ariosto and Tasso, entered boldly upon the Scene of Heroick Poems, but having not Wings for so high Flights, began to Learn of the old Ones, fell upon their Imitations, and chiefly of Virgil, as far as the Force of their Genius, or Disadvantage of New Languages and Cusoms would allow. The religion of the Gentiles, had been woven into the Contexture of all the antient Poetry, with a very agreeable mixture, which made the Moderns affect, to give that of Christianity, a place also in their Poems. But the true Religion, was not found to become Fiction so well, as a false had done, and all their Attempts of this kind, seemed rather to debase Religion, than to heighten Poetry. Spencer endeavoured to Supply this, with Morality, and to make Instruction, instead of Story, the Subject of an Epick Poem. His Execution was Excellent, and his Flights of Fancy very Noble and High, but his Design was Poor, and his Moral lay so bare, that it lost the Effect; 'tis true the Pill was Gilded, but so thin, that the Colour and the Taste were too easily discovered.
