Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Olde Cambridge, Chapter 5: Lowell (search)
ll have in it, he said, a department headed by a vignette representing a broom; and in that we will in each number sweep some pretender out of existence. Then, having done it, we would stand by it, and if we had made a mistake and killed a young Keats we would never acknowledge it. This project so dwelt in his mind that he mentioned it again to Mr. Sanborn twenty years after in regard to the Atlantic Monthly. This method had already been illustrated by his treatment in the Fable for critics on at present. The climate of Italy, I think, did Mrs. Lowell great good, but she is not well enough now to think of leaving home. I am glad you liked Maria's poem. Two others of hers have been published in Putnam, Necklaces, and The grave of Keats. They are all beautiful, I think, and the greatest pleasure I am capable of is to hear them appreciated. With sincere regard, I remain yours, J. R. Lowell. This was written just two months before Maria Lowell's death, and there does not

And Bryant was spared from the beginning furor and contempt: he was never laurelled like Byron, never foolscapped like Keats by critics or public; his repute was always, like himself, dignified, quiet, secure.

aval achievements at Port Royal and Memphis seemed only to put into squadron-strophes the magnificent triumphs of her song. I still recall the enchantment with which I heard, one moonlit summer night, the fine old glee To Greece we give our Shining blades, sung as a serenade under my sister's window, by a quartette consisting of Miss Davis and her brother, of Miss Harriet Mills, who afterwards became his wife, and of William Story. I had never before heard the song, and it made me feel, in Keats's phrase, as if I were going to a tournament. I went to a woman's school till I was eight; then walked daily, for five years, from the age of eight to that of thirteen, to the private school of William Wells, an institution which was then regarded as being — with the possible exception of the Boston Latin School--the best place in which to fit for Harvard College, and which was therefore much sought by the best Boston families. Mr. Wells was an Englishman of the old stamp, erect, vigoro

We were both lovers of Longfellow, also, and used to sit at the open window every New Year's Eve and read aloud his Midnight Mass to the dying year. Thaxter was an enthusiastic naturalist, which was another bond of union, and he bequeathed this taste to his youngest son, now an assistant professor of botany in Harvard University. To Thaxter I owe, finally, the great privilege of borrowing from Maria White the first thin volumes of Tennyson's poems, which seemed to us, as was once said of Keats, to double the value of words; and we both became, a few years later, subscribers to the original yellow-covered issue of Browning's Bells and Pomegranates. Thaxter's personal modesty and reticence, and the later fame of his poet-wife, Celia, have obscured him to the world; but he was one of the most loyal and high-minded of men. At my graduation I was four months short of eighteen, and my purpose was to teach for a few years, and then to study law. This early maturity had, however, one

s Mr. Routledge, and gives the figures as to his sales of the different poets in a single calendar year. First comes Longfellow, with the extraordinary sale of 6000 copies; then we drop to Scott, with 3170: Shakespeare, 2700; Byron, 2380; Moore, 2276; Burns, 2250. To these succeeds Mrs. Hemans, with a sale of 1900 copies, Milton falling short of her by 50, and no one else showing much more than half that demand. Hood had 980 purchasers,Cowper, 800, and all others less; Shelley had 500 and Keats but 40. Of course this is hardly even an approximate estimate of the comparative popularity of these poets, since much would depend, for instance, on the multiplicity or value of rival editions; but it proves in a general way that Mrs. Hemans holds her own, in point of readers, fifty years after her death. What other form of influence for man or woman equals this? Yet there are many other modes of action. That of Florence Nightingale, for instance, modestly vindicating a woman's foresi

as makes even Thoreau seem thin and arid, but combines with it a roll and range of rhythm such as Lowell's Commemoration Ode cannot equal, and only some of Browning's early ocean cadences can surpass. There are inequalities in the poem, little spasmodic phrases here and there, or fancies pressed too hard,--he wrote it, poor fellow, when far gone in his last illness, with his pulse at one hundred and four degrees, and then unable to raise his food to his mouth,--but much the same is true of Keats's great fragments, and there are lines and phrases of Lanier's that are not excelled in Endymion, and perhaps not in Hyperion. A passage from those hymns must be quoted. It is called simply Dawn:-- But no; it is made; list! somewhere,--mystery, where? In the leaves? in the air? In my heart? is a motion made; 'T is a motion of dawn, like a flicker of shade on shade. In the leaves 't is palpable; low multitudinous stirring Upwinds through the woods; the little ones, softly conferring
