Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Cheerful Yesterdays, X. Literary Paris twenty years ago (search)
doubtedly the tallest men in the room. But the especial characteristic of Tourgueneff was a winning sweetness of manner, which surpassed even Longfellow's, and impressed one as being kind nature's, to adopt Tennyson's distinction, and not merely those next to best manners which the poet attributes to the great. Tourgueneff greeted us heartily as Americans,--Mr. Bishop also forming one of the group,--and spoke warmly of those of our compatriots whom he had known, as Emma Lazarus and Professor Boyesen. He seemed much gratified when I told him that the types of reformers in his latest book, Virgin Soil, -which may be read to more advantage in its French form as Terres Vierges, --appeared to me universal, not local, and that I was constantly reminded by them of men and women whom I had known in America. This pleased him, he explained, because the book had been very ill received in Russia, in spite of its having told the truth, as later events showed. All this he said in English, wh

ind their British cousins in these labors; and Professor Boyesen —who, as a Norseman by birth and an American bed to make the selection. To two out of three of Mr. Boyesen's favorites I should certainly take decided obje no difference of opinion. He seems to me, as to Mr. Boyesen, to rank first among those who have made translatsolutely combining the two methods; a thing which Mr. Boyesen thinks—but, I should say, mistakenly—cannot be done. Mr. Boyesen's dictum that no poetic translation can be good and literal at the same time, is refuted by thpleted translation. This last work has truly, as Mr. Boyesen says, an air of constraint; but I think he is in ks, the more precise he becomes. The second of Mr. Boyesen's great American translators is Bryant; and here the Father of Poetry is, in my judgment, one whom Mr. Boyesen does not name, and perhaps does not yet know, so hat may be, which separates prose from poetry. Mr. Boyesen's third great American translator is Bayard Taylo<

riableness or shadow of turning; no doubting between literature or science, still less between this or that department of literature. Since all advisers bid us read only the best books, why not follow their counsel, and keep to Aeschylus and Homer? Who could have foreseen, in Dr. Popkin's day, the vast expansion of modern literatures, which, after exhausting all the Latin races, keeps opening upon us new treasure-houses elsewhere; so that Mr. Howells would bid us all learn Russian and Mr. Boyesen the Scandinavian tongues. Who could have foreseen the relentless Max Miller, marshalling before us by dozens the Oriental religions; and Mr. Fitzgerald concentrating the wonders of them all into Omar Khayyam, who offers no religion whatever, and makes denial more eloquent than faith? Who had then dreamed of the Shakespearian literature, the Dantean literature, the Goethean literature; even the literature of Petrarch, as catalogued by Prof. Willard Fiske, to the extent of nearly a thous

s were full of thought and of human interest; but while bestowing much care upon them, he found time to give to the world a metrical translation of Goethe's Faust and an English version of the Titan of Jean Paul Richter. Professor Davidson's lecture on Aristotle touched so deeply the chords of thought as to impel some of us to pursue the topic further. Dear Charles Brooks invited an adjourned meeting of the club to be held in his library. At this several learned men were present. Professor Boyesen spoke to us of the study of Aristotle in Germany; Professor Botta of its treatment in the universities of Italy. The laity asked many questions, and the fine library of our host afforded the books of reference needed for their enlightenment. The club proceedings here enumerated cover a period of more than thirty years. The world around us meanwhile had reached the height of fashionable success. An entertainment, magnificent for those days, was given, which was said to have cost te
