Sample text

As to the story, I don’t the least object to it on the Spectator’s ground. I think it would not have done in prose. Verse was wanted to give it dignity. But if we find it trivial, the fault is in our own varnished selves. We have been polished up so bright that we forget the stuff we are made of. Yet I have objections again here, for I don’t believe in your Elspie. If any girl in her position was ever so highly cultivated, she is an exception, and so the moral would be false.

To extract tears from sunshine; to hear the wailings of remorse in the song of a skylark; and prove the eternal perdition of Dissenters from the down on a dandelion—is, with these gentlemen, to see into the deepest spiritual symbolism of nature. But the thing is past a jest. As for style, the prevailing problem with the Oxford poets has seemed to be, how best to hide the farthing rushlight of bigotry under the bushel of mystification; how an author, having no definite meaning, or, if he have one, being frightened at it, may so jumble his words as to mean nothing, or anything except what is cheerful, or manly, or expressive of real faith that God has anything to do with the world, or, indeed, has had since Astraea and the Stuarts vanished together in 1688.
