THE POETRY OF AN AGE OF REVOLUTION
(Copyright. 1000. by Seymour Eaton.)
THE OREGONIAN'5 HOMESTUDY CIRCLE: DIRECTED BY PROF. SEYMOUR EATON
XXII. GOLDEN AGE OF ENGLISH
BT THOMAS MARC PARROTT. PILD.
The poetry of the age of Wordsworth
and Byron Is the poetry of an age of "rev
olution. I; does not, to be sure, spring di
rectly from the political upheaval In
France, but It Is closely associated with
It, a product of the same great movement
for liberty of thought and action. With
one great except-on, the poets of the age
take sides for or against. In certain cases,
both for and against, this movement, and
it Is by their common Interest In the rev
olution and their varying attitude to its
puccesslve phases that poets so dissimilar
in form and spirit as Cowper and Scott,
3urns and Shelley, Byron and Coleridge,
are mutually related. And a study of
their work fr&m this point of view lends
a unity otherwise impossible of attain
ment to one of the most brilliant ages
of English literature.
Forerunner! Cotvper and Barns.
The new note is first struck in "Table
Talk" and its companion poems in 172.
Cowper owed little or nothing to the poets
of the preceding generation. His revolt
against the accepted conventionalities of
his time, his close observation of Nature,
his delight In the simple human affec
tlon, all mark him as the poet of a new
day. And in politics, as In literature,
Cowper has something of the revolution
ary spirit. The most devout of Chris
tians, he accepted the idea of the brother
nood of man as a dogma of revealed re
ligion; he translated, as has been well
said, the gospel of Rousseau into the gos
pel of St. Paul. He declared that the
cause of liberty was the cause of man,
prophes'ed that only reform could avert
revolution In England, and exulted in the
approaching fall of royal prisons, "the
abode of broken hearts." No wonder that
Dr. Franklin, that American embodiment
of the revolutionary spirit, found In the
works of Cowper "something so new In
the manner and so Juet in the sentiments"
that he read "the whole with pleasure and
some of the pieces more than once."
Burns, like Cowper, Is a poet of the rev
olution, but he has none of Cowper's calm
and philosophic reverence of liberty. He
is a passionate democrat. The hardships
of hte own life fired him with bitter in
dignation against the Injustice of the pre
vailing social sysem, and he looked to the
ultimate triumph of revolutionary princi
ples for the redress of this injustice.
"It's coming yet. for a that.
That man to man, the world o'er.
Shall brothers be for a' that."
Had Burns lived in France he would
have been n poet of the barricades. In
17P2, the very year of the September mas
sacres, he sent a pair of guns seized from
a smuggler as a personal gift to the
French convention. At a public dinner he
propored the toast of "the last verse of
the last chapter of the last book of
Kings." Naturally enough, consider ng
the circumstances of hte life. Burns waa
not always consistent In his politics. The
fear of losing his place In the excise drew
from him a loud declaration of his at
tnchment to the British constitution. The
threat of French invasion called out one
of the finrct of his patriotic songs, but
even in this outburst he makes no secret
of his democratic principles:
"Who will not flnjj God save the King,
Shall hang as high's the steeple;
But while ve Bins God save the King,
We'll ne'er forget the people."
One of the most striking characteristics
of the poetry of Burns Is his pafs'onate
love of Nature. In this he is the true,
though perhaps unconscious, disciple of
Rousseau, and the forerunner of Words
worth. "I never hear the loud solitary
whittle of the curlew In a Summer noon,"
he writes to a friend, "or the wild mixing
cadence of a troop of gray plover In an
Autumnal morning without feeling an el
evation of soul like the enthusiasm of
devotion or poetry." This enthusiasm for
Nature, a reaction from the urban and
artificial life of the ISth century, is one
of the chief marks df the revolutionary
cplrlt In poetry. It had appeared already
in Cowper, but in Burns we have a
warmth of sympathy which is far in ad
vance of the English poet'e attitude of
somewhat patronizing admiration. When
Burns sees the frightened moue flying
before his plowshare he feels for it as a
"poor earth-born companion, a. fellow mor
tal." "The Twa Dogs" are as human as,
Tarn o Shanter and his crony. In the
fate of the mountain daisy the poet sees
an omen of his own. All Nature, in fact.
Is regarded by Burns as sharing In the
feelings of humanity.
Even more Intense and passionate was
his love for mankind. Burns was no
stricken deer that had left the herd, but
a living, loving, sinning and suffering man,
such as English poetry had not known
since Shakespeare. He sings of what he
has seen and felt, the simple piety and
homely jojs of the "Cotter's Saturday
Night." the laughing fun of "Halloween"
and the "Holy Fn.'r." the rollicking good
fellowship Inspired by John Barleycorn,
above all of love in all its phases, re
jected, despairing, triumphant and remin
iscent. Love poetry, silent in England
since the close of the Elizabethan era,
sprang into glorious life In the songs of
this Scotch peasant. For there was in
Burns a quality of sentiment that Invested
even the basest passion with those rap
tures of fire and air that mark our older
poots. And even finer than these raptures
is the tenderness cf his sympathy for
sinning and suffering humanity. Not ig
norant of evil, he knew how to pity;
and. in sharp contrast with the preachers
and atlr"sts of his century, he drew over
the world the broad mantle of human
But perhaps the characteristic which
man distinctly marks Burns as the poet
of the revolution is his .sp'rit of rebellion
against the established order of things.

Poet of Revolution and Reaction.
Southey, Coleridge and Wordsworth
form a triad of poets closely connected In
their lives and work. A-Ikc subject to
the early influerfces of the revolution, they
alike reacted against it when the lust
of conquest supplanted the love of liberty.
Southey may be dismissed in a few
worda. As a poet he is dead. His 10 vol
umes of verse, ponderous ep'cs and ludi
crous ballads, are relegated to the dust
of the upper shelves. A mere handful of
meditative poems survives to All a cor
ner In the authologles? and if he had not
been the friend of Wordsworth and Coler
idge his personality would be as vague to
us as that of any 18th century laureate.
Perhaps his surest title to immortality la
found in the undying scorn which Byron
poured out upon him In the "Vision of
Judgment." Here Southey nppears as tho
Epic Renegade who
"Had written praises of a regicide;
And written praise of all kings whatever;
lie had written for republics far and wide.
And then against them bitterer than ever."
Yet Southey was never the unprincipled
turncoat these lines Imply. He had hon
estly espoused the principles of the Revo
lution and as honestly recoiled from the
excesses of the reign of terror. But there
was something hard, narrow and Phllls
tinlc about Southey's later work that par
ticularly exposed him to the onslaught of
Byron. His lauded "Ode during the Ne
gotiations fcr Peace" Is In substance a
savage cry for the blood of Napoleon, and
In his "Vision of Judgment." a poem
whose dullness Is equaled only by Its un
conscious profanity, he consigns Wilkes
and Junius to hell because In He they
had dared to oppose that great and good
king, George III. But enough of Southey.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge is the very an
tipodes of Southey. A far profounder
thinker and loftier poet, he was lament
ably Inferior as a man. But h:s rank as
a poet is little disturbed by his moral
fallings, although the quantity of his po
etic production was undoubtedly lessened.
With a few exceptions, all his verse was
written In the last decade of the century,
and It could be included In a narrow corn
pars. But it contains infinite riches in a
little room. He broke away as no one
yet had ventured to do from all the tra
ditions of the century. The exaltation of
his odes, the mystery In simplicity of the
"Ancient Mariner." the haunting music
of "Chrlstabel" all these are absolutely
Coleridge was inspired above his fellows
by the spirit of the Revolution.. As a
schoolboy he exulted In the fall of the
Bast lie. At Cambridge he was the asso
ciate of Frend. who was expelled for
unltarlanlsm and sedition. Against Pitt,
whom he regarded as the representative
of the anti-Revolutionary spirit, he
launched the dreadful Invective of "Fire,
Famine and Slaughter." His finest burst
of Revolutionary feeling Is found in the
"Ode to the Departing Tear" 1797. But
the next year saw a complete change. Al
ready sickened by the massacres of th&
Terror, he shrank In horror from the
French assault on the liberties of Switz
irland. and the greatest of his odes
"France" slng3 his formal recantation of
Henceforth. Coleridge ranked among
the conservatives. He never became a
Tory reactionist, like Southey. But he
abandoned poetry and set himself to In
terpret rather than to alter, the institu
tions, political and religious, of his coun
try. Of his Influence over the later
thought of England, this is not the place
to speak. It Is enough to say that he
became the spiritual father of nineteenth
century Intellectual liberalism, and In
the last years of his life his home at
Hlghgate was as an oracle where the
noblest minds of his country repaired for
It is not possible to overestimate the
rank of Coleridge In English literature.
He recreated the ode. the ballad, and
the metrical romance. He quickened the
stronger but more slowly moving genius
of Wordsworth, and their Joint work, the
"Lyrical Ballads" of 17SS. is perhaps the
most remarkable volume of poetry tho
eighteenth century produced; certainly
it Is the most Important In Its after ef
fects. Both Scott and Byron drew their
Inspiration from the new music of "Chrls
tabel." To no poet of his age do we owe
a deeper debt, not only for what he did,
but for what he caused others to do.
So much has been written on Words
worth that it seems a hopeless task to
take up the tale and say anything new.
From Coleridge and De Qulncey to Ar
nold and Swinburne the foremost Eng
lish critics have delighted to dwell upon
his verse, to point out its merits and de
fects, to examine the theory of poetry
upon which it is based, and to expound
the philosophy which it contains. And
the predilection with which criticism has
turned to Wordsworth has its good and
sufficient reasons. For three-quarters of
a century he has been the most profound
and stimulating Influence In EnsIIuh
poetry and has done more than any
modern poet to inform and strengthen
English life. For his poetry has a qual
ity, "fortifying and ennobling." that Is
at once unique and priceless. He -was
himself well aware of this. "Trouble not
yourself," he wrote to a friend lament
ing the savage criticism which for the
momept checked Jhe sale pf his poems;
S. T. Coleridge
"trouble not .yourself "upon their present
reception: of what moment Is that com
pared with what I trust is their destiny?
to console afflicted; to add sunshine to
daylight by making the happy nappler; to
teach the young and gracious of every
age to see. .to think, to feel, and, there
fore, to become more actively virtuous."
The superb self-confidence which inspired
these words has been amply justified and
It is well worth our while to make an ef
fort to discover the reason of Words
worth's Influence and the sources of his
PHILIPPINE DRESS FABRICS
Rare and Rich Weaving by the
Women of Las on.
Only those who have lived a long time
in the Philippines have any conception
of where and how the exquisite pineapple
fiber fabrics are manufactured. It seems
incredible that "they are practically home
spun goods which rival In texture the
products of the marvelous looms of civil
ized Europe. The fiber itself Is almost as
fine and -soft as silk, and the cloth Is trans
parent, and when worn over arms and
neck softens and enriches the natural
coloring of the skin.
American women go into raptures over
these beautiful fabrics when they vlsi
Manl'a, and spend much of their time in
searching ainoirg tho little native shops
for rare specimens. The native stores,
however, do not keep anything but the
commonest varieties. It is only In the
homes of the weavers, known to tfiose
who have been buyers for years, that
the exquisite pieces can be purchased.
The prettiest fabrics are those known as
Jusl (pronounced hoosy). In which colcred
silk threads are woven into the fiber
to form narrow stripes. Theee may be
had In all tints and many combinations
Then there is the PIna pronounced
peen-ya), made entirely of pineapple fiber,
either natural or dyed In brilliant colors.
It Is this fabric which is used for the
marvelous embroideries produced during
the spare moments of the Philippine
housewives and daughters and "sold for a
mere fraction of its cost from the stand
po'nt'of the time Involved in the work.
Many of the embroidered handkerchiefs
require the work of months to complete
and are sold for from $10 to $20 each. In
a country where a year's labor la re
warded with $50 In Mexican silver, It Is
possible yet to buy these beautiful goods,
but in a few years those now in exist
ence will be priceless.
Paris baa taken the entire output of
these skillful weavers and embroiderers
for years, the buyers having almost a con
trol of the manufacturers, whose humble
homes are entirely unknown to the general
public and who have never had the ben
efits of a competitive market in which to
display their wares.
In addition to the Jusi and Plna cloth,
there are fabrics of varying design and
texture made of hemp fiber, bearing the
name of Indang, Albay, Bohol, names
taken from the locality where the partic
ular var'ety is manufactured. These lat
ter fabrics are almost Indestructible, and,
while rather coarse In texture, arc novel
ties which can be worked up Into shirt
waists, coverings for sofa pillows, sash
The first night of a collection of these
fabrics fills ono with surprise that such
rkill. such splcnd'd taste, such art. could
exist among a people generally regarded
as on-ly reml-clvlllzed.
GHOSTS THAT ARE LAID.
A Grandson of Senntor Henderson
Speaks of the Death of Crittenden.
HOOD RIVER, Or.. May 14. (To the Ed
Itor.) Your touching and thrilling edi
torial In the dally of yesterday, entitled
"Ghosts That Are Laid," Is peculiarly
Interesting to me. I was cradled during
infancy among some of the Incidents of
the Cuban rebslllon of 1S51 that you men
tion. My grandfather. John Henderson,
was the only Whig In the Senate. He
was United States Senator from Missis
sippi, and while In the Senate he was
one of the strongest and most faithful
supporters of General Lopez. One of the
flrst sounds my baby ears heard from my
grandfather's lips was "Cuba llbre." How
he sank nearly all his fortune In that en
terprise; how he was Impeached for fili
bustering; how he defended himself and
was acquitted; how his wife's brother,
Mr. Fownlquet, and other personal friends
were shot with the noble Crittenden In
Havana, are events that have passed Into
h'story. Today, should you desire to see
them, will be found at Ladd & Tllton"s
bank, your city, four bonds that were
lasued ' to grandfather by the then de
facto Cuban Government, which Issue of
bonds was sold In this country to help
the Cuban cause. Is It any wonder, then,
that I am a Arm believer in the righteous
ness of the Sp&nJoh War, and at the same
time am a "howling expansionist"? Here
tofore I have always voted the Democrat
ic ticket. Were I to vote that ticket now
my illustrious grandslro would turn over
In his grave. To me It seems that every
patriotic American who loves his country
better than his party should vote the Re
publican ticket at the coming election from
top to bottom, losing sight of his personal
friends, who may be on the other side,
In order that he may give expression to
his patriotic and expansion views. Tours,

comments made upon the excel ent work
being done by these little ones under
Miss Daley Gaylord. their teacher, at the
Free Kindergarten, on Seventeenth and
After the applause had died away from
this pleasant feature of the programme,
an instructive and delightful paper was
read by Miss Mallle Emnger. principal of
the Free Kindergarten at 391 Elgnteenth
street, north. This gave a clear and suc
cinct outline of the plan and scope of
kindergarten work as It Is being carried
on by the association here in Portland,
dwelling upon the dally programme and
Its five divisions: Occupations, gifts,
games and study of Nature. Enough wag
said of the deep, philosophical Import un
derlying the practical aspects of the work
to show its real beneficence in develop
ing the moral and intellectual life of the
child. The paper was replete with happy
thoughts most happ.ly expressed, and fur
nished a valuable commentary upon the
preceding exercises furnished by Miss
Gaylord's class of children.
Following this came a pleasant and in
formal talk by Miss Bertha Barln, princ
pal of the Free Kindergarten at the Third
Street Mission. The remarkable work
that has been accomplished in the short
time since this school was opened was
modestly touched upon. When It was or
ganized In February there were 15 children
onh and, these having been obtained by
mcans of personal visits in the neigh
borhood. Now there are 46 on the roll.
The energy that has to be put Into work
In this district can hardly be imagined;
there are many obstacles to be over
come; a large number of the children have
to be called for at their homes in the
morning and accompanied on their return
home at noon. Some of them had to be
clothed by kind friends of the mission be
fore they could attend. A large number
of the children are considerably below
the kindergarten age; hardly yet out of
their babyhood, in fact, and these, of
course, require much skill and tact In
dealing wth them. Moreover, there are
such frequent changes constantly going
on in that district that no fewer than
19 have had to be dropped from the roll
merely on account of change of resi
dence. In the three months that have
elapsed since the school was opened. In
spite of these difficult obstacles to be over
come, and many others, the work offers
extraordinary encouragement to the
D. Soils Cohen then made a brief ad
dress to the audience, setting forth In
strong, picturesque English the value of
kindergarten work. There are many per

the truth of Shakespeare's saying that
there are "sermons In stones, and tongues
In trees," yet fall to realize the appealing
beauty and innocent glory, the living, pal
pitating potentiality that lies In the eyes
of childhood. Taking this as a text, he
boldly declared that carelessness. Ineffi
ciency and neglect In the management of
the young was a constantly growing con
dition in all parts o'f America. Facts
that apparently signified to the contrary.
In reality emphasized this" truth. The in
creasing number of reform schools, boys'
and girls' aid societies, and the various
philanthropic Institutions that were con
tinually cropping out In this spot anff that
all over our land, bore incontrovertible
testimony to the need that exists for more

in the form of a sensational trial, which
gives rise to a bellicose wagging of
tongues for a few dajs. and then dies out
and Its lesson Is forgotten. If we answer
the question, "Am I my brother's keeper?"
In the affirmative, we will wisely begin
with the child, rather than with corrupt
manhood and womanhood, where charac

Herein lies the great mistake of the
world, that philanthropists with great
puffing and blowing thatio as ineffectual
and useless as the vapors that come from

of the mire. If one-half the energy and

fore I had been completely relieved of heart
trouble by Dr. Miles' Heart Cure, and I
thought perhaps I might find some relief from
the same source for my nervousness. The
next day I purchased a bottle of Dr. Miles'
Nervine and the effect of the first dose was a
marvel. Before the first bottle was gone I was
greatly improved and in a short time after I
was relieved of every trace of the disorder."

School will have athletic teams on the
grounds, and will give an exhibition. The
entertainment will certainly be unique,

fastest riders, and business men are re
sponding liberally along this line. The
railway employes hope as a result of the
race and exposition that they will be
able to turn over to the Baby Home be
tween $500 and $750, which -will be very
acceptable at this time.
