in young men's libraries of the British Essayists of Addison's period. The result was a well-bred, clearly written, somewhat prosaic style common to both nations, but practically brought to an end by Carlyle with his impetuous vigor and by what Holmes called the Macaulay-flowers of literature. These influences in England, with the rise of Emerson and Parker in America, brought a distinct change, and Lowell eminently contributed his share when Professor Bowen, editing the North American, complsome period of the Atlantic's existence, if not the whole, to be classed as Cambridge authors, together with the total of contributions credited to each in the Atlantic Index, of 1888: W.

Craigie House has played a much larger part in Cambridge tradition than the houses which were also the birthplaces of Holmes and Lowell. Those who have spent summers in Cambridge within the last ten years must know well-such is certainly my own house the centre, as he did, for what was best in Cambridge. In this he went far beyond his two eminent contemporaries,--Holmes, of course, having in maturity no home in Cambridge, while Lowell's house was less easily accessible, and the delicate hefor the more thorough and laborious German mind. In comparing these self-revelations with those given in the letters of Holmes and Lowell, one is struck with their far less brilliant and scintillating tone and, on the other hand, with their comparahis patience held out through all these trials, his strictness of judgment did not; and that he, like all elderly poets,--Holmes and Whittier in particular,--found it very much easier to praise than blame.

ost widely associated with old Cambridge, only Holmes and Lowell were born there, although its assocfluence of his Cambridge surroundings, because Holmes went to Europe for his medical training (1833)ce entered more strongly into Lowell than into Holmes, but it was in Lowell's case less concentratedtablished in the editorship of Harvardiana, as Holmes's had been ten years earlier in The Collegian,the treasure chamber of death. In comparing Holmes and Lowell, we are at once struck by the small writer; he accepted this as his sphere, while Holmes regarded literature as a mere avocation, not aained smoothness or finish in utterance, while Holmes easily attained it. Lowell was always liable tinterrupt the flow of the sentence. From this Holmes is far more free; he takes almost as many and far more regularly trained to literature than Holmes, and not surpassing him in exuberant fertilityion has its merits as well as direct; and that Holmes may have learned something for literary uses i[3 more...]
