Aeschylus, Agamemnon (ed. Robert Browning), line 0 (search)
-- Old Muytens: and the annalist, Baron de Tessé, has not concealed his profound dissatisfaction at Old Muytens' conceit "to have himself had something to do with the work of whatever master of eminence might pass through his hands." Whence it was,--the Baron goes on to deplore,--that much detriment was done to that excellent piece "The Recognition of Achilles," by Rubens, through the perversity of Old Muytens, "who must needs take on him to beautify every nymph of the twenty by the bestowment of a widened eye and an enlarged mouth." I, at least, have left eyes and mouths everywhere as I found them, and this conservatism is all that claims praise for -- what is, after all, a)ke/leustos a)/misqos a)oida/ (Ag. 979). No, neither "uncommanded" nor "unrewarded": since it was commanded of me by my venerated friend Thomas Carlyle, and rewarded will it indeed become if I am permitted to dignify it by the prefatory insertion of his dear and noble name. R. B. LONDON: October 1st, 1877.
