SWINBURNE, A. C. The Sisters: A Tragedy. New York: United States Book Co. 12mo, gilt, gilt top, cl., pp. 126.

Swinburne stands to-day the greatest of dramatic poets. These two later editions but serve to confirm this. “The Sisters,” especially, is a poem of great beauty, with strong scenes and dramatic situations.

HORTON, GEORGE. Songs of the Lowly, and Other Poems. Chicago: F. J. Schulte & Co. 12mo, gilt, gilt top, cl,, pp. 241, $1.50.

Mr. Horton is a pleasing versifier. True to the text, his songs are indeed “Songs of the Lowly.” Simple themes clothed in metaphorical expression, readily understood and appreciated. Mr. Horton does not "talk over the heads” of his readers. He appeals to them directly. His verses are marked by a smoothness of rhythm and metre.

VEATCH, ANDREW. Over the Line and Other Poems. Jasper,

Texas. Author's edition, 1892. 8vo, PP. 32, pap., 30C.

JONES, WILLIAM C. Birch-rod Days and Other Poems. Chi

cago: American Publisher's Ass'n. 12mo, port, gilt, gilt top, cl., pp. 266.

WILLIAMS, Espy. The Dream of Art, and Other Poems. New

York: G. P. Putnam's Sons. I6mo, gilt, gilt top, white cl., Pp. 99, 75C.

These poems are no better, no worse than many others. They are well written, but denote no striking originality.

LANG, ANDREW. Helen of Troy. London: George Bell & Sons. 16mo, gilt, cl. pp. 204.

Mr. Lang is a thorough student of Greek literature, and this latest addition to his already numerous writings is but an emphasis of his ability. Helen of Troy is a translation of her life done into English verse.

WRIGHT, DAVID HENRY. "Is Peace on Earth?” Philadelphia, Pa.: J. B. Lippincott Co., 1802. 12mo, leatherette, pp. 64.

Mr. Wright is a young writer, judging from the photo, which serves as frontispiece. Passing from the frontispiece to the initial poem, which gives title to the book, we find strong, sturdy lines, which bear out the impression given by the photo, and we venture to predict the author will have something to say in the future years, and that he will not fear to say it. Many of his poems are addressed to famous men and women, which would proclaim him a hero-worshiper. His themes are well handled and show great strength, purity of diction and an ear attuned to melody.

MACAY, Eric. Love Letters of a Violinist, and Other Poems.

New York: Lovell, Coryell & Co. 12mo, pp. 277, cl., gilt, gilt top.

Love Letters of a Violinist consists of twelve letters, representing as many moods, beginning with the prelude, and closing with “victory,” the grand finale. Gladys the Singer, in two cantos,
