[29] Cum Paris Oenone. This whole account is wonderfully simple and moving. The reader

finds himself deeply engaged for Oenone. He is full of concern at her hard fate, and pities her distress. A poet who thus knows how to move the passions and engage our attention, is master of his subject, and cannot fail of being well received.
