WIT, WISDOM, AND PATHOS,
FROM THE PROSE OF
VJIJH A FEW PIECES FROM THE "BOOK OF SONGS."
SELECTED AND TRANSLATED BY
'* Mr. Snodgrass has produced a book in which lazy people will find a
great deal to please them. They can take it up at any moment, and open
it on any page with the certainty of finding some bright epigram ; they
need not turn down the page on shutting up the volume, as it matters
little where they resume. There is nothing jarring in the whole book." —
Atheuaiim, April 19, 1877.
"No Englishman of culture who is unacquainted with Heine can fail to
derive a new intellectual pleasure from Mr. vSnodgrass's pages." — Contem-
forary Revieiv^ September iSSo.
"Mr. Snodgrass would appear to have saturated himself with Heine
literature, to have so caught Heine's mode of thought and his turns of
expression — quaint, droll, swift, and scathing by turns — that the trans-
lator would appear to have had no more difficulty in presenting Heine as
he was to the reader than he would have in presenting his own thoughts."
Glasgoio Herald^ March 31, 1879.
"Mr. Snodgrass, in his 'Wit,' \c., has done a grcnt service in thit
respect, presenting as it were a full-length minialure of the n»an, clear and
eftective, wherein his characteristic expression is faithfully cau^jht, and
where, if we look carefully, we can see him as he really was, f..r he it
made to paint his own portrait."— ^/iV/V// QuarUrly Rcvieiv, Octohr 1881.
'• Mr, Snodgrass has certainly done great service to English literature in
presenting us with a compact little volume like that before us."— 5/v<-/<i/^.
"A word of cordial praise is due to the translator, Mr. J. .^nodgrasn,
for his admirable performance of a very difficult task. Ilis liook is one to
welcome and to keep as a treasure of almost priceless thought and criti-
cism." — Contemporary Review^ February 188 1.
"Mr. Snodgrass is to be thanked for a very seasonable bit ',f wnrV:,"—
Examiner^ April 26, 1879.
*' We are bound to say that Mr. Snodgrass has done his work exception-
ally well." — The Literary JVorld, A/ay g, 1879.
" Mr. Snodgrass has made a valuable addition to English literature in
this volume, and has given us a most attractive and eflkient intro<luction
to the study of Heine." — T/ie Nonconformist, August 20, 1879.
"He has performed his task with skill, tact, and judgment; and it is
easy to perceive that he has a thorough acquaintance with his author and
sympathy for his matter." — Notes and Queries, Aj>ril 19, 1S79.
"The result of Mr. Snodgrass's attempt has been the production of a
volume which, for variety and interest, may be pronounced one of the
most successful books of the season." — Aberdeen Journal, March 26, 1879.
"In Heine, whose prose writings in German fill well on to a score of
volumes, we find in remarkable combination the best qualities of German
thought, along with the sparkle and brilliancy of an accomplished French-
man's style." — Aberdeen Daily Free Press, April 21, 1S79.
"Mr. Snodgrass has done his selection and translation auuui.u'i^ wcu,
and we owe him thanks for a volume which has in it more wit of the
highest sort, and more political insight, than any book that has lately been
given to the public." — Vanity Fair, November 8, 1S79.
"The compiler of this interesting little volume, Mr. J. >..
perfectly right in saying that Heine is chiefly known to Engli^ll
the author of the ' Book of Songs.' ''—The Week, April 19. ii>7«,).
"The 'English Fragments' have a special interest for tl. )i
reader; but the selection from Heine's prose works in gener.il. i
ciously made and excellently translated by ]\Ir. Snodgrass, gives a much
comi)letcr view of the qualities of the writer's mind." — Saturday Revieiv.
"Mr. Snodgrass has not essayed to give at all an exhaustive collection
of Heine's witty, wise, and pathetic sayings ; but he has selected, in the
•rdcrin which they occur in the complete German edition, such extracts
as have specially commended themselves to himself. He has produced a
very enjoyable volume, exactly adapted to the taste of lazy and luxurious
persons, who can just take up the book for five minutes to read a delight-
ful passage, complete in itself, and not long enough to fatigue the most
fastidious attention." — Academy, May -^l, 1879.
