cipline than its later copies in America, to one of which, however, Longfellow himself went later as a patient,—that of Dr. Wesselhoeft at Brattleboro, Vermont. He met or read German poets also,—Becker, Herwegh, Lenau, Auersberg, Zedlitz, and Freiligrath, with the latter of whom he became intimate; indeed reading aloud to admiring nuns his charming poem about The Flowers' Revenge (Der Blumen Rache ).

He just missed seeing Uhland, the only German poet then more popular than Freiligrath; he visited camps of 50,000 troops and another camp of naturalists at Mayence. Meantime, he heard from Prescott, Sumner, and Felton at home; the Spanish Student went through the press, and his friend Hawthorne was married. He finally sailed for home on October 22, 1842, and occupied himself on the voyage in writing a small volume of poems on slave

y planned as Estrays in the Forest, and he records a visit to the college library, in apparent search for the origin of the phrase. His next volume of original poems, however, was The Belfry of Bruges and Other Poems, published December 23, 1845, the contents having already been partly printed in Graham's Magazine, and most of them in the illustrated edition of his poems published in Philadelphia. The theme of the volume appears to have been partly suggested by some words in a letter to Freiligrath which seem to make the leading poem, together with that called Nuremberg, a portion of that projected series of travel-sketches which had haunted Longfellow ever since Outre-Mer. The Norman Baron was the result of a passage from Thierry, sent him by an unknown correspondent. One poem was suggested by a passage in Andersen's Story of my Life, and one was written at Boppard on the Rhine. All the rest were distinctly American in character or origin. Another poem, To the Driving Cloud, th

original with him, and it was of course a merit in the legends that they were not original. The book received every form of attention; it was admired, laughed at, parodied, set to music, and publicly read, and his fame unquestionably rests far more securely on this and other strictly American poems than on the prolonged labor of the Golden Legend. He himself writes that some of the newspapers are fierce and furious about Hiawatha, and again there is the greatest pother over Hiawatha. Freiligrath, who translated the poem into German, writes him from London, Are you not chuckling over the war which is waging in the Athenaeum about the measure from Hiawatha ? He had letters of hearty approval from Emerson, Hawthorne, Parsons, and Bayard Taylor; the latter, perhaps, making the best single encomium on the book in writing to its author, The whole poem floats in an atmosphere of the American Indian summer. The best tribute ever paid to it, however, was the actual representation of it

that great task which Longfellow, after an early experiment, had dropped for years, and which he resumed after his wife's death, largely for the sake of an absorbing occupation. Eighteen years before, November 24, 1843, he had written to Ferdinand Freiligrath that he had translated sixteen cantos of Dante, and there seems no reason to suppose that he had done aught farther in that direction until this new crisis. After resuming the work, he translated for a time a canto as each day's task, anduction was on the whole an ideal one, and whether, in fact, a less perfect work coming from a single mind might not surpass in freshness of quality, and therefore in successful effort, any joint product. Longfellow had written long before to Freiligrath that making a translation was like running a ploughshare through the soil of one's mind, Life, II. 15. and it would be plainly impossible to run ploughshares simultaneously through half a dozen different minds at precisely the same angle.

ld not have been written by a blind man who knew clouds merely by the descriptions of others. The limitation of Longfellow's poems reveals his temperament. He was in his perceptions essentially of poetic mind, but always in touch with the common mind; as individual lives grow deeper, students are apt to leave Longfellow for Tennyson, just as they forsake Tennyson for Browning. As to action, the tonic of life, so far as he had it, was supplied to him through friends,—Sumner in America; Freiligrath in Europe,—and yet it must be remembered that he would not, but for a corresponding quality in his own nature, have had just such friends as these. He was not led by his own convictions to leave his study like Emerson and take direct part as a contestant in the struggles of the time. It is a curious fact that Lowell should have censured Thoreau for not doing in this respect just the thing which Thoreau ultimately did and Longfellow did not. It was, however, essentially a difference of t
