[248] expression. For the philological study of the Greek and Latin classics, for instance, one must go to Germany; but you may explore a whole alcove of German editions and not gain so much of the peculiar aroma of Greek literature as you can obtain from Ampere's Grece, Rome, et Dante, or from Matthew Arnold's “Essay on Translating Homer,” or from our own Professor Palmer's extraordinary version of the “Odyssey” in rhythmic prose. For one, I do not ask for a mere reproduction of German methods until Germany itself is broadened and revivified.
