of this same fine poem (Woodnotes) there are passages which elicited from Theodore Parker, one of the poet's most ardent admirers, the opinion that a pine tree whic discouraged young people from reading his books. He died May 6, 1882. Theodore Parker. There were grouped about Emerson in Concord, or frequently visiting its of the Transcendental School whom we must not pass by. One of these was Theodore Parker, that eminent heretic, who has had the curious experience of being at lastson used to say that the only numbers which sold well were those which had Theodore Parker's articles in them.

Proud music of the storm, When Lilacs last in the Dooryard Bloomed, and others, will readily occur to memory. Often, on the other hand, they are inflated, as Chanting the Square Deific, or affected and feeble, as Eidolons. One of the most curiously unAmerican traits in a poet professedly so patriotic is his way of employing foreign, and especially French words, to a degree that recalls the fashionable novels of the last generation, and gives an incongruous effect comparable only to Theodore Parker's description of an African chief seen by some one at Sierra Leone: With the exception of a dress-coat, his Majesty was as naked as a pestle. Of all our poets, he is really the least simple, the most meretricious; and this is the reason why the honest consciousness of the classes which he most celebrates — the drover, the teamster, the soldier — has never been reached by his songs. He talks of labor as one who had never really labored; his Drum Taps proceed from one who has never pe

pinion, was apt to find the college doors closed against him, and only the country lyceum — the people's collegeleft open. Slavery had to be abolished before the most accomplished orator of the nation could be invited to address the graduates of his own university. The first among American scholars was nominated year after year, only to be rejected, before the academic societies of his own neighborhood. Yet during all that time the rural lecture associations showered their invitations on Parker and Phillips; culture shunned them, but the plain people heard them gladly. The home of real thought was outside, not inside, the college walls. That time is past, and the literary class has now come more into sympathy with the popular heart. Even the apparent indifference of a popular audience to culture and high finish may be in the end a wholesome influence, recalling us to those more important things, compared to which these are secondary qualities. The indifference is only compara
