    logical subject

    "The world is urgent with bursting life, with the wild exciting beauty of youth, but it is an impetuous beauty of the senses racing impatiently into the florid and surfeited luxury of summer."

    In the above sentence, who did "racing"? Senses racing, or beauty racing? I thought it's senses, as it has to have someone to race against. Thanks.
