Success is Counted Sweetest does not present quite so wholly negative a vision of fame and success, but it does address this theme. Success here, however, is dangerous, for it takes away the speaker’s ability to appreciate that success. This represents a general lessening of the successful person’s emotional realm, and if this success is in the field of poetry, that will certainly lead to weaker poems in the future.
