LONGOLIUS



Imparts an indescribable charm. He seldom or never
attempts to excite admiration by far-sought conceits, by
wild or lofty flights of imagination, or by the exhibition
of dark and terrible passions. He relies chiefly for his
success on a simple and direct appeal to those sentiments
which are common to all mankind, to persons of every
rank and of every clime.

It is, in fact, to his command over those feelings which
are universal in the human heart, that we must ascribe
the extraordinary popularity of his Indian story of " Hia-
watha." It is, perhaps, not too much to say that he is
not merely the first but the only writer who has suc-
ceeded in giving a deep and living interest to a story of
Indian life. Restricted as he necessarily was by the
nature of the subject, by the extreme simplicity, not to
say meagreness, of the character of our aborigines, he
has yet produced a poem which not only comes home to
the hearts of the masses of the people, but which must ex-
cite the admiration of the cultivated reader who will take
into consideration the inherent difficulties of the task,
and the limits and restrictions which the poet, in selecting
such a subject, had necessarily to impose upon himself.
The form of the verse is in admirable keeping with the
simplicity of the story. " But, unhappily for the poet," as
has been observed, " this is the very measure to attract
the parodist," and, immediately upon the issue of the
poem, countless parodies were made upon it. Those,
however, who can appreciate the intrinsic merits of true
poetry find much that is beautiful and excellent in the
" Song of Hiawatha." Several different translations of
it have been made, one by the distinguished German
poet Freiligrath, and it has been read and admired in
every part of Europe.

and critic, was born probably in Syria, and flourishec
in the third century. Some ancient writers call hin

He was a pupil of his uncle Phronto of Emesa, and was
a Platonist in philosophy. He opened at Athens a
school of philosophy and rhetoric, which became ver
celebrated. The famous Porphyry was one of his pupils
After passing many years at Athens, he accepted the



nvitation of Zenobia, Queen of Palmyra, to reside at

ouncillor or prime minister during her war against Au-
elian, Emperor of Rome. The latter, having captured
'almyra, put Longinus to death in 273 A.D. Longinus
'as the first to whom was applied the phrase, often re-
eated since, "a living library," and is considered the
reatest philosopher of his age. He wrote many critical
nd philosophical works, none of which have come down
o us except his admirable " Treatise on the Sublime,"
IIcp2 Tfyotif,) which Boileau translated into French and
ailed a " master-piece of good sense, learning, and elo-
uence." Some writers, however, have doubted but witb
ittle reason, it would seem whether Longinus was the
eal author of this work. (See, on this subject, the arti-
le " Longin" in the " Nouvelle Biographic Generale.")
It has been truly said that to be a good critic one must
>e something of a poet. This qualification Longinus
lossessed in a pre-eminent degree. Pope, addressing
im, says,

"Thee, bold Longinus ! all the Nine inspire,
And bless their critic with a poet's fire ;
An ardent judge, who, zealous in his trust,
With warmth gives sentence, yet is always just ;
Whose own example strengthens all his laws,
And is himself that great sublime he draws."

Essay on Criticism, part lii

Of Longinus's " Treatise on the Sublime," several good
French translations have been made, one by the cele-
rated critic and poet Boileau, (1674.) It has also been
ranslated into German by Schlosser, and into English
>y \V. Smith.

and talent, was born at Vincennes in 1619. She was a
sister of the great Conde, and was married to the Due
de Longueville, noticed below, in 1642. The enmity
between the parliaments and Mazarin gave rise to the
faction or conspiracy of the Fronde, of which she became
the heroine. Her nonchalance and languor were agree-
ably diversified by surprising and splendid awakenings
of genius. She exercised great influence over the chiefs
of the Fronde, and had a liaison with La Rochefou-
cauld, who was one of the leaders of that party. When
her husband and brothers were imprisoned by'Mazarin
in 1650, she escaped to Stenay, the head-quarters of
Turenne, whom she induced to join the party of the
Fronde. With his aid she effected the release of her
three friends in 1651, and returned to Paris in triumph.
Peace was made between the Frondeurs and the court
in 1659, after which she ceased to meddle with politics.
She became devout, and spent much time in her latter
years at the cloister of Port-Royal. Cardinal Mazarin
once said, "We have three women in France who would
be competent to govern or overturn three great king-
doms, namely, the Duchess de Longueville, the Princess
Palatine, ana the Duchess de Chevreuse." Died in 1679.
