Cambridge History of American Literature: volume 2 (ed. Trent, William Peterfield, 1862-1939., Erskine, John, 1879-1951., Sherman, Stuart Pratt, 1881-1926., Van Doren, Carl, 1885-1950.), Chapter 18: Prescott and Motley (search)
patriot, Motley was obliged to take his own risks, and The rise of the Dutch republic was published at the author's expense by John Chapman in London, and by Harpers in New York. The sale of fifteen thousand copies in two years proved the fallibility of human judgment. The reviews were not, however, as uniformly favourable as in Prescott's case. The Saturday review 23 March, 1856. brought heavy artillery to bear on the ambitious American in the same number with a censorious attack upon Browning's Men and women and three columns upon the lack of interest in Miss Yonge's unpretentious domestic tale, The Daisy Chain.

k of so many nineteenth century writers. His work does not recall, even in the minds of its admirers, a group of impressions so distinct and fixed as those summoned by the poetry of Whittier, Poe, or Whitman, or by that of Swinburne, Morris, or Browning, or by the prose of Thoreau or Emerson, of Ruskin or Arnold. His work, indeed, does not have the marks of a dominant or of a peculiar personality; nor does it add to literature a new group of ideas or a new departure in workmanship. Though its the visits of the Muse grew rarer, and Lowell came to find his most characteristic expression in the prose essay. As the close of the war relieved him from the pressing necessity of political writing, he naturally returned to literature. Mrs. Browning, in one of her letters to her husband, complains of the Conversations on some of the old poets, which she has just been reading, that Lowell is saying over again the same things that every one knows. There is, no doubt, a certain truth in t
