xvil-3631 “ A treasury of information, not so much, however, about the Decameron,' as about Panchatantra, the Seren wise masters, Dolopathus, the story of three rings, every celebrated legend of wbich any trace, how. ever small, is to be discovered in Buecacio. In fact, Boccacio himself is frquently almost invisible amid the opulence of illustration. This luxuriance of detail, however, renders the work very amusing; and it might almost serve as a guide to the intricate ramifications of those popular fictions which have obtained universal cur. rency." - Saturday rec., Jan. 19, 1884.

Sein Buch hat dadurch eine weit über den Bereich der speciellen Boccaccioforschung hinaus. greifende Bedeutung erhalten und ist ein Werk geworden welches einem jeden, der mit vergleichender Sagengeschichte, namentlich aber einem jeden, der mit der in. neren Litteraturgeschichte des Mittelalters sich beschäftigt, von höchstein Werte sein muss." - G. kortiny in

VP27M "It is open to doubt if it has been Mr. Pater's inten. tion to offer an apology for the higher epicurianism; possibly he has merely endeavored to trace the develop ment of a cultured mind in a period that bears no slight resemblance to our own. ... If, however, it has been his intention to demonstrate the futility of either Epicurian or Stoic philosophy, and to show that Christianity is alone in any sense really responsive to man's deepest as. piratious, then he has been only very partially success. ful. Indubitably he has in Marius' skilfully, and with. out precipitation, disclosed the lees that abide in the bot. tom of the cup that contains the mellow wine of the wis. dom of Epicurus; but at most be vaguely suggests that in its place, if we care to partake thereof, there is a drauglit of more vivifying essence, of more estimable flavor – yrt of the permanency of whose subtle regen. erative quality he can buy, as he knows, nothing. In a word, the mental history of Marius will hardly help any one in the same plight as was Marius himself after all his years of careful introspection, anxious thought, and vague expectancy. There is no living writer who excels Mr. later in grace of style. He does not indulye in passages of sustained eloquence, but every word he writes is calculated to be the best word in that place, to have its full significance brought out.” – Athenaum,

The two last mentioned are exceptionally gooil. We hare nowhere seen a juster estimate of Newton, or better picture of him, alike in his strength and in his weak. ness.

“ The original poems are occasional poems often graceful and tender, more rarely powerful; but they are not more than occasional. And they have the impres. sion of effort, of a straining after effect, of a certain want of restraint in the use of ornament, an occasional defect in taste, and a ring of something not altogether true in the pathos and sentiment. ...

“ A book may have an amount of brazen pretention and historical untruthfulness which entitles it to men. tion and comment, and this one seems to come within that description. It was rash in him to attempt to imitate the English style of the early part of the 17th century, when he bas no conception of the vocabulary and style of the period.

IM-4236 " When we bear in mind that it is the habit of the day to look on obscurity as of the essence of philosophy, Dr. Martineau's style may be regarded as fairly lucid, and though he is not a very systematic writer, he is always readable, and sometimes even eloquent. His main object is to advance and defend these two theses, the infallibility of Conscience, and the ultimate indentifica. tion of ethics with religion. His own theory or school, which he baptises with the curious and original name · Idio-psychological appears to include in addi. tion to the author, two writers who in many respects are widely different, so different, indeed, that it seems difficult to bring them under the same category, Butler and Kant. Surely, the conduct of life would be a much easier matter than it is if we could always act, to our satisfaction, on so simple a rule as that which Dr. Martineau proposes. And if society at large were to agree to act uniformly in strict accordance with this graduated scale of excellence among, motives, it occurs to me to ask how long would it continue to subsist ? No one can rise from Dr. Martineau's work without an admiration for the author's character, and many will de. rive from it additional impulses to right conduct. But it is, I think, its hortatory and editicatory, rather than its scientific or historical value which is most likely to commend it.” – T: Fowler in the Academy, Apr. 25.
“Unquestionably one of the most powerful of those not too numerous books which the rare philosophical genius of English thinkers has produced. Dr. Martineau combines the thoroughuess and laboriousness of Teutonic scholarship with the lucidity, the precision, and often the vivacity of French exposition. No reviewer can give anything like an adequate notion of the vast labour, the subtle thought, and the firm criticism by which this work is characterized throughout.”.

But he chats on briskly enough about a large number of interesting and familiar figures in our mod. ern Babylon, and his general reflections on the charac. ter of its social life are not without point and cleverness.
