Apart from these, it may be truly said that the little volume called Flower de Luce was the last collection published by him which recalled his earlier strains.
His volume Ultima Thule appeared in 1880, and In the Harbor, classed as a second part to it, but issued by others after his death.
With these might be placed, though not with any precision, the brief tragedy of Judas Maccabaeus, which had been published in the Three Books of Song, in 1872; and the unfinished fragment, Michael Angelo, which was found in his desk after death.
None of his dramatic poems showed him to be on firm ground in respect to this department of poesy, nor can they, except the Golden Legend, be regarded as altogether successful literary undertakings.
It is obvious that historic periods differ wholly in this respect; and all we can say is that while quite mediocre poets were good dramatists in the Elizabethan period, yet good poets have usually failed as dramatists in later days.
