Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Olde Cambridge, Chapter 4: Longfellow (search)
less need be said of that other psalm called The light of stars ; and the present writer at least can vividly testify what it was to him and his friends. It is worth remembering that the English reviewers of the day spoke of what they called the peculiarly American tone of such poems as these, counteracting the pessimism of older countries. Placed beside the inexhaustible depth of Browning, the perfect execution of Tennyson, the absorbing passion of Rossetti, or the wonderful melodies of Swinburne, it is now easy to recognize that such poetry as Longfellow's had its limitations, but it represented one whole side of life, and that in a way which undoubtedly gave him for many years the widest poetic audience in the English-speaking world. Only last year I saw a volume of popular poetry, published for wide circulation in England, in which there were more poems by Longfellow than by all English-born poets put together. The translations of these poems into fifteen languages tells the

he same afternoon between five and six o'clock, at that Club. The Savile Club and Cosmopolitan Club were also attractive. The most agreeable private receptions of poets and artists were then to be found, I think, at the house of William Rossetti, where one not merely had the associations and atmosphere of a brilliant family,--which had already lost, however, its most gifted member,--but also encountered the younger set of writers, who were all preraphaelites in art, and who read Morris, Swinburne, and for a time, at least, Whitman and even Joaquin Miller. There one met Mrs. Rossetti, who was the daughter of Madox Brown, and herself an artist; also Alma Tadema, just returned from his wedding journey to Italy with his beautiful wife. One found there men and women then coming forward into literature, but now much better known,--Edmund Gosse, Arthur O'Shaughnessy, Cayley, the translator of Dante, and Miss Robinson, now Madame Darmesteter. Sometimes I went to the receptions of our fe

ared do in England as he would do at home. Whittier was unknown they said, and Lowell only through the Biglow Papers. Swinburne calls him no poet but a critic who tries to write poetry. (13-14 June) I spent in Conway's Convention which was veryicks-Beach, Labouchere and the leaders generally; they hit quite as hard as our congressmen. To-day I am going to meet Swinburne. Our reception at the Channings [Francis Channing, M. P., now Lord Channing of Wellingborough] was a great success, our Warden. A London letter written in August reports:— The Colonel and Margaret had a delightful afternoon with Swinburne. The house where he and Watts-Dunton live is full of Rossetti's pictures. Swinburne devoted himself to Margaret and sSwinburne devoted himself to Margaret and showed her many treasures. The rest of our time was spent in the south of England. From Wells, Colonel Higginson went to Glastonbury partly to see Mrs. Clarke, John Bright's daughter, whom I saw in America, a strong reformer and Anti-Imperialist

h as would, if Haydn employed them, be called high art, so Shakespeare often employed the simplest devices of sound such as are familiar in nursery songs, and thus produced effects which are metrically indistinguishable from those of Mother Goose. Lanier was a critic of the best kind, for his criticism is such as a sculptor receives from a brother sculptor, not such as he gets from the purchaser on one side or the marbleworker on the other. What can be more admirable than his saying of Swinburne, He invited me to eat; the service was silver and gold, but no food therein save pepper and salt; or of William Morris, He caught a crystal cupful of yellow light of sunset, and persuading himself to deem it wine, drank it with a sort of smile. Among the fullest and most suggestive of these criticisms is his estimate of Whitman. Whitman represented to Lanier a literary spirit alien to his own. There could be little in common between the fleshliness of Leaves of grass and the refined ch

to spend a day or two at Oak Glen, where the household was thrown into a flutter by the advent of his valet. It was one thing to entertain the aesthete, another to put up the gentleman's gentleman. In spite of all the affectation of the aesthetic pose, Wilde proved a rarely entertaining guest. He talked amazingly well; in that company all that was best in the man came to the surface. He recited his noble poem, The Ode to Albion, under the trees of Oak Glen, and told endless stories of Swinburne, Whistler, and other celebrities of the day. The dreadful tragedy came later; at this time he was one of the most brilliant figures in the literary world. March 4.
