"The splendid eloquence and heroic enthusiasm of Victor Hugo never found more noble and sustained expression than in this volume,' says Mr. Swinburne. In glow and color, it is a kaleidoscope of brilliant images, a dazzling procession of swiftly-moving and ever-varying thoughts. For it is not as a portrayal of Shakespeare's life and character that this work attains its chief significance. The salient facts in the great dramatist's career are rapidly sketched and the chief phases of his genius touched with a master-hand. But the work is vastly broader and deeper than its title, which, as the author himself says in his preface, should more properly have been' Concerning Shakespeare. Shakespeare's name is but the text on which he builds his grand discourse, wherein he touches the profoundest problems of life and art, the mission and responsibilities of genius and the part it must play in the advancement and elevation of the race.'

Humphrey, Frances A. The children of old Park's tavern: a story of the South Shore. N Y., Harper, 1886. 284 p. S. cl., $1.

[ocr errors]

Mrs. Humphrey has skilfully interwoven the threads of history and fiction, and the result is a charming story, which recounts some incidents in the childhood of Dorothe Winslow and Ned Parks at the "old Park's tavern,' built in Byfield about 1680. Although the scene is laid in Byfield, we have a passing glimpse of Hingham, Plymouth, Marshfield, and other historic towns along the south shore of Massachusetts Bay, as well as some pleasing reminiscences of Daniel Webster, Emily Marshall, and some New England celebrities who lived in the early part of the eighteenth century,

The book reports no newly discovered facts, and no new exploration of the original sources of history, but aims to present in condensed form some of the more important results of scholarship in this field of study. It also aims to bring the cardinal facts to the attention of some who might not know where else to find them. It states the creed of the Congregationalists as formulated by the Com mission held at St. Louis in 1880. The work will be even more useful to outsiders than to the members of the church, whose history it makes very interesting.

"The leading principles of the system of oratorical instruction advocated in this book may be briefly stated as follows: The aim of elocutionary instiultion should be to awaken the internal feeling rather than to assume the external language of the feeling or emotion That is, the internal feeling should come first, not the external signs. The radical defect of nearly all systems of elocutionary instruction, which have hitherto appeared, is that they have not a philosophical basis. In addition to the general treatment of the subject according to the principles of the human constitution, we have given a chapter descriptive of the temperaments and the style of elocution natural to each, which any teacher can study, and by observing the temperamental combinations of his pupils can adapt his instruction with the view of developing cach one's natural styles of delivery."—Introduction.

Lady Jackson has a special gift of description, which has full scope for its exercise in the brilliant courts of Francis I. and Henry II., whose reigns occupied the first part of the 16th century. The many pageants of marriages and deaths, notably, among the former, that of Mary of Scotland to the young Dauphin of France, are presented to the reader with a wealth of detail that is quite fascinating. This epoch is rich in many interests. It witnessed the beginning of the Reformation in France, and possessed the infamous Catherine de Medici. It was a period of great luxury and display, and one in which learning and the fine arts received a great impetus. Lady Jackson has done full justice to all these subjects.

· Many of the poems have long been favorites, and a reperusal of them increases the favorable opinion with which they were first regarded. They are the outpourings of a woman's warm heart and have that spontaneous

quality which we all admire in the verses of our best minor singers. The sonnets are clean cut, artistic pro

ductions, and the lyrics sing themselves into the memory like strains of delicious music. The shorter pieces are delightful, but Mrs. Hunt showed that she was capable of higher flights in The story of Boon." This is told in flowing numbers, and with a felicity of description and richness of coloring that reproduce the tragic features that underlie all the glowing beauty of Eastern life."-Boston Gazette

Jackson, Mrs. Helen Hunt, ["H. H." Zeph: a posthumous story. Bost., Roberts Bros., 1885. 253 p. D. cl., $1.25.


The scene is laid in Colorado. Zeph is a carpenter. is married to "Rushy," a vain, passionate, discontented woman, who at intervals leaves his house and stays away for days, sometimes taking her children, sometimes not. Zeph's tender love for this woman, his patience and consideration, and the many plans and thoughts he has to make her home more attractive to her, are themes that Mrs. Jackson handles in her exquisite way. The story was broken off suddenly by her death. The rough outline of the plot as noted down in her papers has been added by the publishers.

Jacob Schuyler's millions" is an American novel, the action taking place in New Jersey, near New York City and in the metropolis. The story is of strong interest, affording a graphic picture of life a quarter of a century ago. The characters are well portrayed, the style is fluent and easy, and the mystery surrounding Jacob Schuyler's millions is ingeniously managed.

A sequel to "Birchwood." Those who read that book will remember that Mr. Plimpton had offered the use of an old vacant house on his place to his children and their young friends, upon condition that they should use it not as a mere play-house, but for some purpose tending to their improvement. After much thought and consultation the young folks decided to make a museum of it, for the purpose of studying and collecting specimens of natural objects in the neighborhood; and to this was added a library, consisting of donations of books and papers for the children themselves.

N. Y., Macmillan & Co., 1886. 2449 p. D. cl., $2.

The Bostonians" is more a series of sketches than a story, the plot being a mere thread connecting them together, in which there is neither suspense nor surprises. The characters are taken from a special class of men and women-women chiefly-whom we are led to believe flour ish in the atmosphere of Boston-mediums, lecturers, woman's rights women, philanthropists, and radicals of all kinds and degrees. Mr. James presented his people with such cruel attention to details, that those satirized were easily pointed out, much wrath and indignation being the natural consequence, in the novel's slow course through the Atlantic. Noble aims and purposes meet with the same vivisection and biting sarcasm that are hestowed upon thecranks" and "frands"-the whole tone of the book being pessimistic in the highest degree. Still it is a notable work, and one upon which M Temes has bestowed more care than anything he has ever written.

James, H: The Princess Casamassima: a novel.
N. Y., Macmillan & Co. 1886. 2+596 p. D
cl., $1.75.
The entire story finds scene in London. The characters
are, with a few exceptions, from the working classes, and
are all strongly imbued with socialistic principles; the
Princess Casamassima and several of her trusted friends
belong to a secret society, whose chief aim is the assassi-
nation of obnoxious persons of the nobility and the im-
provement of the condition of he poor. The hero, Hya-
cinth Robinson, is a poor bookbinder whose birth is shad-
owed by a tragedy, and who owes the care of his early
years to the charity of an unfashionable dressmaker, liv-
ing in an obscure London street. He is fascinated by the
"Princess," his weak nature making him a victim of a
plot laid for others. The Princess' title is derived from
her Italian husband; she is English by birth, with Amer-
ican blood in her veins, being, in fact, our old friend
Christina Light, the heroine of "Roderick Hudson."
The book is rich in elaborate character studies, and is one
of the most interesting and popular in style of any James
has written.

Divided into two parts, the first being a traveller's
guide, the second descriptive and historical. Mr. Janvier
says in his preface: "This book contains the information
that I felt the want of when I first went to Mexico. The
theory upon which it is constructed is, that what can be easi-
ly found and plainly seen need not be laboriously described;
that a traveller of ordinary intelligence, after being told
what to look for, and where to look for it in a strange
country, desires most to know the historic facts and as-
sociations connected with what he sees. Consequently,
while I have not shrunk from using angular facts wherever
clearness made such facts necessary, there are not many
lengths, breadths, and thicknesses in this guide-book."
