to overspread a continent; and they had two or three centuries of romantic and picturesque pioneer history behind them. We now recognize that Irving, Cooper, Bryant, Whittier did not create their material; they simply used what they found; and Longfellow's fame did not become assured till he turned from Bruges and Nuremberg, and chose his theme among the exiles of Acadia. It was not Irving who invested the Hudson with romance, but the Hudson that inspired Irving. In 1786, when Mrs. Josiah Qui158 (October, 1840). It was this strong conviction in their own minds of the need of something fresh and indigenous, which controlled the criticism of the Transcendentalists; and sometimes made them unjust to the early poetry of a man like Longfellow, who still retained the European symbols, and exasperated them by writing about Pentecost and bishop's-caps, just as if this continent had never been discovered. The most striking illustration of the direct literary purpose of this movement

to do anything I can to aid you. There must be prompt answer, as the press will wait. Your affectionate Margaret. Ms. The following month, after the appearance of a circular from Mr. Emerson announcing the continuance of the magazine, she writes as follows:-- Canton, April 18 [1842]. dear friend,--I received your letter before I left Boston, but in the hurry of the last hours could not write even a notelette with the parcel I requested J. Clarke to make up for you of Borrow, Longfellow, some more shreds of Dial, including the wearifua Napoleon, and the Prayer Book, if Dorothea Dix could be induced to grant the same. What awkward thing could I have said about your advertisement? I can't think.--All was understood, except that you had said I should put my name on the cover and announce myself as editor, only that I am not sure I can bind myself for so long as a year, and so when I saw the advertisement I was glad, and only so far surprised as that I had not felt sure

all her books. He has reprinted it, without alteration, in that volume of her writings called Art, literature, and the Drama, including the preface, which was thought to savor of vanity and became the theme of Lowell's satire; although the sentence he apparently had in view, I feel with satisfaction that I have done a good deal to extend the influence of Germany and Italy among my compatriots, was strictly true. It was in this volume that she published — being the only part of it that had not previously appeared in print — an essay on American literature, in which she expressed, more fully than before, the criticisms on Longfellow and others which were then not uncommon among the Transcendentalists, and which, as uttered by her, brought on her head some wrath. It did not diminish this antagonism that the offending essay attracted especial attention in England, and was translated and published in a Paris review; but this aspect of her career must be considered in a later chapt

commend,--their absolute truthfulness. She never asked how this would sound, nor whether that would do, nor what would be the effect of saying anything; but simply, Is it the truth? Is it such as the public should know? And if her judgment answered, Yes, she uttered it; no matter what turmoil it might excite, nor what odium it might draw down on her own head. Perfect conscientiousness was an unfailing characteristic of her literary efforts. Even the severest of her critiques,that on Longfellow's Poems,--for which an impulse in personal pique has been alleged, I happen with certainty to know had no such origin. When I first handed her the book to review, she excused herself, assigning the wide divergence of her views of poetry from those of the author and his school, as her reason. She thus induced me to attempt the task of reviewing it myself. But day by day sped by, and I could find no hour that was not absolutely required for the performance of some duty that would not be p

ar more leniently judged at the present day. Longfellow's friend Felton translated Menzel's German L in relation, namely, to her fellow-townsmen Longfellow and Lowell. It may readily be admitted at tthis lowest of literary vices. In regard to Longfellow, she in the first place, as Horace Greeley t We must confess to a coolness towards Mr. Longfellow, in consequence of the exaggerated praisesexperience of life within himself, prevent Mr. Longfellow's verses from ever being a true refreshmenhe people. Neither have we forgotten that Mr. Longfellow has a genuine respect for his pen, never wny that there was a certain force in it? As Longfellow underwent deeper experiences and mellowed ingratuitously, that she meant it for a hit at Longfellow himself; and hence followed a very needless ustice while pointing out, as in the case of Longfellow, that she felt bound to resist a certain ton of Margaret Fuller, he was immolating the good-natured Longfellow's literary enemies with his own.
