It is the same feeling--though not indeed in so great a degree--that one experiences when one looks at the picturesque disorder and irregularity of English Gothic churches from the standpoint of the severely ordered majesty of Chartres, or even of Amiens, which yet has so much about it that recalls its neighbourhood to England.From the right standpoint, however, English Gothic architecture is full of charm, and even of art. In the same way I cannot at all admit that Shakespeare is unsuited for the stage. One has only to remember that it is the Romantic not the Classic stage. It is the function of the Shakespearian drama, and of the whole school of which Shakespeare is the supreme representative (I put aside Marlowe who died in the making of a greater classic tradition), to evoke a variegated vision of the tragi-comedy of life in its height and its depth, its freedom, and its wide horizon.
What Ive never been able to figure out is how he happened to solve the problem of that central span.Dont think youve ever realized what a wonderful piece of work that was. Its something new. Must have been a happy accident--must have come to him in what Id call a flash of intuition or genius. He sure hadnt it in him to work such a thing out in cold blood. Ive recently been given reason to suspect-- began Mr. Leslie. He paused, hesitated, and refrained. But well talk of that later. First, my reason for sending for you. I understand that you know this man Blake, who, unfortunately, was the person that saved my daughter. Hell be satisfied with the glory. Reports will continue to name him as Resident Engineer. If he wont listen to reason, Ill ask his father to drop him a line. The young fool has had his allowance cut twice already. Hed consider his pay as engineer a bare pittance. If I know George Ashton, he has a good safe will drawn, providing that his fortune is to be held in trust.
We always hear in the that the dead are burned, and the ashes of princes are placed in a vessel of gold within an artificial hillock; but we do not hear, except in this passage, that they are burned in their armour, or that it is burned, or that it is buried with the ashes of the dead.The invariable practice is for the victor, if he can, to despoil the body of the fallen foe; but Achilles for some reason spared that indignity in the case of Eetion. [Footnote German examples of burning the amis of the cremated dead and then burying them are given by Mr. Ridgeway, _Early Age of Greece,_ vol. i. pp. 498, 499. ] (2) _ILIAD,_ VII. 85. Hector, in his challenge to a single combat, makes the conditions that the victor shall keep the arms and armour of the vanquished, but shall restore his body to his friends. The Trojans will burn him, if he falls; if the Achaean falls, the others will do something expressed by the word [Greek tarchuchosi] probably a word surviving from an age of embalment.
