As time went on, Longfellow's poems were financially more profitable than some which were profounder, as those of Emerson; and probably no American poet has been on the whole so well repaid in money, popularity, and in at least temporary fame. How permanent is to be the fame of any poet can never be predicted by his contemporaries. He undoubtedly shared with Carlyle, whose miscellaneous essays were first collected and edited during this period by Charles Stearns Wheeler, another Cambridge instructor, the function of interpreting Germany to America. This he did first in Hyperion, and continued to do in his Poets and poetry of Europe and his numerous translations. Few men, I suspect, have ever surpassed him as what may be called natural translators, proving it possible to produce versions that are both flexible and literal, sacrificing neither literalness to grace nor grace to literalness. Perhaps it could not actually be said of any of his transl

was in his prime by the English public, and Willis tells us that it was not so in America. He says in his Letters from under a Bridge--his only thoroughly attractive book--How profoundly dull was England to the merits of Charles Lamb until he died. . . . America was posterity to him. The writings of all our young authors were tinctured with imitation of his style, when in England (as I personally know) it was difficult to light upon a person who had read Elia. It was an American, Charles Stearns Wheeler, one of Emerson's early disciples, who collected in the Athenaeum library the scattered numbers of Fraser's magazine, thus bringing together the fragments of Sartor Resartus, which was published in a volume in Boston before it appeared in that form in England. The same Charles Wheeler went to England soon after and bore to Tennyson the urgent request of his American admirers that he would reprint his early volumes; which he did in the two-volume edition which appeared in 1842.
