sbtent with the established pUce of
Gothic as the earliest surviving form
of Germanic q>eech, preserved in the
Gothic Bible of the 4th century. No-
thing daunted. Prof. Wiener attacks
Gothic and at his touch the Bible of Ul-
filas becomes a version of the late 8th
century, with its home, as well as that of
the remaining Gothic fragments, among
the Visigoths of Provence and northern
Spain. It is, however, premature to
rejoice, with certain of the profane, over
the deposition oi Ulfilas from the high
seat, for the argument is still incomplete.
Certain pabeographical and theological
considerations here presented may dear
the way, but the crux comes with the
vocabulary and structure of the lan-
guage, which are to be discussed in a
later volume treating of the words "of
Arabic origin in the Gothic Bible and in
all the Germanic languages" and the
Arabo-Gothic origin of Germanic myth-
ology. Obviously a work of this sort,
compact, rapid, oversure of its results,
requires a much more detailed examina-
tion than is possible here or at the hands
of any single reviewer. The problem is,
in the first instance, one for the philolo-
gists, and until they have spoken a mere
historian must reserve his judgment.
When his turn comes, he will have some-
thing to say concerning the difference
between the history of words and the
history of institutions and ideas, and the
difficulties of either method of inquiry in
the obscure and perplexing period of the
ttrly Middle Ages. Meanwhile he will
be grateful to Prof. Wiener for his fresh
and stimulating suggestions and for his
vindication of the importance of those
documentary sources which have been too
much neglected by the philologist, the
jurist, and even the professed historian.

The OberUhrer: A Study cf ike Social and
Prqfeeeumal Evolution of the German
SehoolmoMter, by William Setchel
Leuned, Ph.D. '12. Harvard Stud-
ies in Education, Vol. 1. Harvard
University Frew. 1914.
An epic character faintly suggested in
the title gives to this volume an interest
somewhat unusual in an academic mon-
ograph. The hero is a superman, a typi-
cal figure, in reality a whole profession,
but none the less human. Dr. Learned
portrays with much dramatic power his
rise from poverty, disrespect, and inward
weakness in the fifteenth century to so-
cial recognition and developed profession-
al consciousness in the twentieth. We see
him first the ill-paid, whining, clerical
under-servant; then the bladc-ooated,
learned, remote, and awkward philologue;
at last the man of the world, reaching
toward mastery of the art and science of
his calling through intensive, independent
study of its many-sided problems. It is
a stirring record, which may well encour-
age those who are eager to see teaching
become more than a hap-hazard occupa-
tion open to any personally attractive
holder of a college degree. If the Great
War has caused anyone to lose respect
for German teachers, he might well re-
gain at least a part of it through the
reading of this book. The fruitful lesson
which Dr. Leamed's interpretative chap-
ters bring out is as true as it ever was:
the necessary condition of respect is
worth. Recognition and reward come in
the end to those who do the right thing
well. For the teacher, the decision as to
what the right thing is involves the ne-
cessity of soda], philosophical, and hu-
manitarian studies of wide range and
great complexity. To know what to
teach one must know what knowledge is
of most worth, a problem never lightly
to be settled for all time, even by a Her-
bert Spencer. The present social situa-



tion; the proper and realiiable ends of
national, community, and individual
life; and the underlying order of eternal
values — all these must be held in view
before the teacher can see deariy the
place and significance of his work. And
to do it with a certainty and eflPective^
ness even approaching that, let us say, of
the physidan, the teadier needs a tech-
nical skill and judgment whidi unor-
ganized, unanalyxed, and unmeasured
experience have never yet given him.
He must study his tjeaching as a doctor
studies his cases, to fit means to aids
with at least a partial assurance of the
outcome. To such clarity of view and
precision of practice the modem teadier
must needs aiQ>ire, if his future is to be
brighter than his past. The public, to be
sure, must be persuaded to accept lus
vision and recognise lus achievements
when they appear; but the inner victory
must precede the outward acdaim. This
record of progress toward it on the part
of the schoolmasters of Germany cannot
but fascinate and hearten progresave
teachers everywhere. It is peculiariy
fitting that Dr. Leamed's book should
be the first volume in the new series of
Studies just established by the Division
of Education. It "looks before and af-
ter," and makes indubitable the value of
such work as Schools and Departments
of Education are endeavoring to do.

The Eoute That Woe, and other poems,
by B. R. C. Low. John Lane
Company.
In this slender book of forty poems
Mr. Low stays in the main current of
Encash verse; yet, for the most part, he
is not artificial and unpleasantly con-
ventional. He moves, often with free-
dom, neariy always with grace, amid his
material; we must admit, however, at
the last page, that he does not move with
the vigor, let us say, the imperiousness

of the oommanding poet. Tbis is not to
deny that Mr. Low has real poetic re-
oeptiveness and considerable technical
equipment. We cannot help feeling that
he is reaching out in a sensitive and intel-
ligent way for real poetic effects; we feel,
also, that he generally does not quite
succeed and sometimes we cannot be
sure what effect he strives for. We exon-
erate him from trying to induce just
vague indeterminate emotion in us; in all
but one of the forty poems we are sure
that he is trying to give us more than
sound. We cannot, for instance, share
his apparently sincere ecstasy over the
fact that a young friend of his — gender,
feminine — has a seventeenth birthday,
but we are interested in hu excitement.
Mr. Low is typical of one dominant con-
temporary tendency, in writing with a
particular experience before him and in
keeping the actual incident before us,
too. Such a method has the advantage
of concreteness, of contact with the tan-
gible worid; it makes us feel sometimes,
however, that the poet has not gathered
up sufficient experiences within himself
to give forth representative human
experience. Most readers will find that
the title poem "The House That Was"
justifies itself as the most ambitious
effort in the volume. In tlus piece Mr.
Low has very little new to say, but he
escapes from the lugubrious tone of the
English graveyard school and, better
still, from the decadent morbidity of
French symbolism. The best sustained
passage in the book is found here:

"Thou wu a man, and didst drink life, not

ease.
The man thou wast most certainly did stand
Face-forward in the open fields of fight:
Thou hast been seaward like a rocky wall
And felt the grinding thunder at thy gates.
When oceansMirred: thy battlements besieged
Have weathered-out the cruel cannon quake,
The crushing stone and sickening, barbed hail:
Thou art all smooth with searching winds of



The best short poems are "To Luda,
in the Hospi^" "A Hill Touched
Heaven," "For Value Received," and
"Wharves and Warehouses." Four out
of forty is an excellent proportion. Mr.
Low should persevere.

National Floodmarka. Week by Week
Obeenation* on American Life as
eeen by Collier's, Edited by Mark
Sullivan, *00. New York: George
H. Doran Co., 1916.
Perhaps the most striking defect in
this book is unconsciously stated in the
foreword: "China becomes a republic or
may become an empire again; if the edi-
torial writer is moved to the expression
of something worth while on tlus transi-
tion we have an editorial on it; if not, we
let China alone and print an editorial on
hollyhocks or some other subject that
the writer does happen to have an idea
about." As leaders, issued week by
week, this may do well enough, although
when China is becoming an empire read-
ers are probably more interested in the
fact than they are, for the moment, in
hoUyhod&B; and the assertion of real ideas
in each leader makes the reader pos-
sibly unduly expectant. But when this
hodge-podge of little essays is put be-
tween doth covers, it is hard to see a
reason for calling it a book. A real book
has a central purpose, artbtic, or ethical,
or something, and this has none. Even
the essays collected under a definite
heading, such as "A Democrat in the
White House," express no definite opin-
ion or criticism. (One wonders whether
they could have been so colorless in dis-
cussing Theodore Roosevelt.) It b quite
true that editors are as fallible as other
mortals, and yet we other mortals have
got into the habit of expecting from
them definite opinions on vital ques-
tions. If they are wrong we can disagree;
if they are right we can applaud; in

either case the reaction ia worth having.
Bnt if they are non-committal or trivial
there ia nothing left but to be bored. In
general theae leaders are well written, —
partly the influence of Harvard training,
let us hope, — but they have, on the
other hand, no such distinction of style
as would make th^ publication in book
form inevitable. For those who find
Collier's inspiring they are worth having
on the shelf.

The Bachelors, by William Dana Orcutt,
'M. New York: Harper and
Brothers, 1916.
This is one of the truest Harvard sto-
ries ever written. It hardly toudies Cam-
bridge; there are a couple of undergradu-
ates of rather unusual irresponsibility
who intermittently burst into the story;
but the heroes, the "bachelors," are
"old men'* who graduated some quarter
of a century ago. There is a little about
dubs, about Commencement week,
about the Yale race, but these things are
only accessory. What makes the book
truly typical of Harvard is that the Har-
vard spirit is not once lost si^^t of. It is
the oonuudeship of old associations, the
loyalty to a common ideal, that makes
consistently fine the life of one bachelor,
re-creates another when, after long
years, these things are revealed to him.
The only aspect of the book not quite
typical of Harvard is the very frank ad-
mission of obligation to the College, the
loudly expressed love of it retailed by
the various characters. Harvard men
are generally reticent about such things,
especially men of the type of Hunting-
ton, for whom B[arvard, with all that it
implies, is as inevitable as Boston. For
this very reason, however, those of us
who do not know how to speak out are
perhaps secretly glad that some one else
has expressed our thoughts. We cannot
tell it ourselves, but, really, the world



ought to know what Harvard means to
its graduates. This ICr. Orcutt has told
with great if not with complete justice.
College kiyalty is the bans of the book
and if Yale men will only substitute the
name of their own college it ought to
apply as much to them as to us. The
book is, on the whole, a good but by no
means a great novd, althoui^ it has not
what the publishers claim, an unex-
pected ending. It is rather better than
that because it ends as it inevitably
must.

America at Work, by Joseph Husband,
'06. Boston: Houghton Mifflin
Co., 1916.
This is a series of pictorial essays
describing various phases of American
activity, from dectridty to mining, from
railroading to coffin-making. It would
be idle to deny that the pictures given
are vivid. The trouble is that they are
too vivid. Theyaie altogether too mudi
dressed up with fine words, like so many
college themes written by ambitious but
intemperate college students, who think
that to be extraordinary is to be great.
A verb or an adjective, used normally in
some one field, is often arresting in its
power of connotation when used by a
literary master in some quite different
field. When this transpodtion of normal
meaning occurs in almost every para-
graph, it ceases to be effective, and the
reader finally becomes wearied with the
author's obvious attempts to be clever.
Frank Norris gave some real pictures of
America at work which were supremdiy
effective because the occasional violent
colors were inevitable. Mr. Husband
fails because he is self-conscious and
therefore never simple. His subject is so
big that it needs no fine trappings. One
felt reality in his former excellent little
book, A Year in a Coal Mine; here one
thinks only of the artificial style.

The Otorgics and Edogust cf VtrgU,
translated by T. C. Williams, '76.
Harvard University Press.
. The appearance ai this posthumous
work establishes beyond cavil Mr.
T^^]liams*s place in the very front of
American translators. Ten years ago his
rendering <A the JBneid into blank verse
was acclaimed as the most successful of
all En^^ish translations oi Virgfl's epic.
In this he most happily combined the
demands of scholarship and poetry, and
his version of the Edogues and Oeorgie$
maintains the same standard. While it
may be doubted whether blank verse is
potentially the best English medium for
the earlier poems, yet Mr. Williams has
reproduced their freshness and charm
with extraordinary sympathy. As Pro-
fessor Palmer tells us in his profoundly
appreciative introduction, this transla-
tor lived for over twenty years in daily
intimate companionship with the great
Latin poet. Such a one is worth a score
of our novelists and free-verse writers.
Many more such men are needed in
American letters.

The Poetry cf Oiacomo da LenHno, by E.
F. Lan^y, A.M., '00. Cambridge:
Harvard University Press, 1915.
Professor Ernest F. Langley's The
Poetry of Oiacomo da LenHno, Sicilian
Poet of the Thirteenth Century, opens the
new series of Harvard Studies in Ro-
mance Languages, founded from the
bequest of the late Solomon Lincoln of
Boston. In the Introduction, the editor
gathers together and wdghs judiciously
all the available information about
Giaoomo, notary at the court of Em-
peror Ferdinand H, chief poet of the
Sicilian School, leader in the dolce etU
nvoeo, earliest master of the sonnet.
Tile present volume b the first complete
critical edition of his poems. These of-
fered many difficult problems in lan-



guage, metre, and thought which have
here been handled in a very able and
scholarly fashion. The book is an
important addition to our knowledge of
early Italian poetry.

Incense and lanux^aem, by C. L. Moore.
Putnams. $1.50.
In this volume Mr. Moore collects a
large number of short essays which ap-
peared originally as leading articles in
The Dial, Frankly choosing breadth of
interest and lightness d tone rather than
profundity, the author flits pleasantly
over an alarming variety of subjects
from Hindu drama to Celtic folklore.
The attractive title hardly justifies rea-
sonable eipectations, for the inoono-
clasm is not violent and the incense not
pungent. The reader is stirred by much
suggestive commoit to mild, not un-
comfortable, intdlectual activity. Such
literary excursions, unjustly slurred as
" superficial," are all too rare in America*
