Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Chapter 12: voices of the night (search)
s only to turn to the novels of Charles Brockden Brown, or even Bancroft's History of the United States, to see how eminently this was the case in America. Whatever the genius of Poe, for instance, we can now see that he represented, in this respect, a dangerous tendency, and Poe's followers and admirers exemplified it in its most perilous form. Take, for instance, such an example as that of Dr. Thomas Holley Chivers of Georgia, author of Eonchs of Ruby, a man of whom Bayard Taylor wrote in 1871, speaking of that period thirty years earlier, that something wonderful would come out of Chivers. Passages from the Correspondence of Rufus W. Griswold, p. 46. It is certain that things wonderful came out of him at the very beginning, for we owe to him the statement that as the irradiancy of a diamond depends upon its diaphanous translucency, so does the beauty of a poem upon its rhythmical crystallization of the Divine Idea. One cannot turn a page of Chivers without recognizing that he

difficult poem, called The Spanish student, — a drama in five acts; on the success of which I rely with some self-complacency. But this is a great secret, and must not go beyond the immediate family circle; as I do not intend to publish it until the glow of composition has passed away, and I can look upon it coolly and critically. I will tell you more of this by and by. Longfellow's work on The Poets and Poetry of Europe appeared in 1845, and was afterwards reprinted with a supplement in 1871. The original work included 776 pages, Mistakenly described by the Rev. Samuel Longfellow as nearly four hundred pages. Life, II. 3. the supplement adding 340 more. The supplement is in some respects better edited than the original, because it gives the names of the translators, and because he had some better translators to draw upon, especially Rossetti. It can be said fairly of the whole book that it is intrinsically one of the most attractive of a very unattractive class, a book of

and most consecrated efforts, The Divine Tragedy. Mr. Scudder has well said that there is no one of Mr. Longfellow's writings which may be said to have so dominated his literary life as the Christus, and it shows his sensitive reticence that the portion of it which was first published, The Golden Legend (1851), gave to the reader no suggestion of its being, as we now know that it was, but a portion of a larger design. Various things came in the way, and before The Divine Tragedy appeared (1871) he had written of it, I never had so many doubts and hesitations about any book as about this. On September 11 in that year he wrote in Nahant, Begin to pack. I wish it were over and I in Cambridge. I am impatient to send The Divine Tragedy to the printers. On the 18th of October he wrote: The delays of printers are a great worry to authors; on the 25th, Get the last proof sheet of The Divine Tragedy; on the 30th, Read over proofs of the Interludes and Finale, and am doubtful and perpl
