Thinking the catalogue would be unnecessary to those who love poetry, and tedious to those who do not, I have not included in this Index references to the shorter quotations and allusions in the text. This addition would indeed have almost amounted to another volume. The writer has borrowed on all sides : he is more Editor than Author: readers inclined to approve any single thought or phrase will do well, (he warns them), to reserve their favour for those, qui ante nos nostra dixere.

JUNE, 1857.


2 (1) From all who know love by trial I hope to find pity, if not

pardon.--PETRARCH: Son. i. (2) I am not made like any other men I have seen.-ROUSSEAU:

Confessions, B. i. 3 They put up a fine statue to Time, with this inscription, TO THE

CONSOLER.-VOLTAIRE : Les deux Consolés. 4 AUGUSTINE: Confessions, B. xi, c. 2. 5 Infantia mea olim mortua est, et ego vivo.-Confessions, B. i, c. 6. 7 Little one, I saw you gathering the dewy apples in our orchard

croft with your mother, and I was your guide; I was young in my twelfth year then: I saw, I was undone, ah how!

-VIRGIL: Ecl. viii, 37. 8 I cannot rightly tell how I entered it.— Inferno, c. i. 11 Our way of life and dwelling places are still always the same,

and no new pleasure forges itself as we live on.—LUCRETIUS:

B. iii, 1078. 16 Winter's Tale, Act i. sc. 2.


17 If I interweave truth with ornament, if in some part I grace

my pages with other charms than thine.-T. Tasso :

Gierusalemme, C. i, st. 2. 22 RUSKIN, Notes on the Turner Gallery. 25 The Presence of the Gods becomes visible and their tranquil

dwelling-places: the winds cannot shake, or the mists encloud them; the hoary snow, gathering beneath the energy of frost, forces no entrance nor can rest there; cloudless aether ever surrounds, and smiles on them in floods

of immeasurable radiance.—LUCRETIUS : B. iii, 18. 27 If such glory has any real weight.–VIRGIL: Aeneid, B. vii, 4. 28 (1) Lavinia my bride is thine. (2) Lycoris, here are fresh springs, here are trees and deep

meadows; here I could consume an eternity on love and

thee.--VIRGIL: Ecl. x, 42. 31 The spirit of Youth. 32 As a translation, I shall quote a fragment from André Chénier;

Et les baisers secrets et les lits clandestins.

The original is from MIMNERMUS: Nanno. 33 Her bearing, words, countenance, and dress.—PETRARCH :

Son. cclxxii. 35 She hears men praise her and passes on veiled in the grace of

modesty, and seems a Miracle sent earth from heaven.-Vita

Nuova: Son. xiii. 36 Dante has told this vision twice: the translation in the text is

adapted from both versions.

Pareami vedere il sole oscurare sì che le stelle si mostravano d'un colore che mi facea giudicare che piangessero : parevami che gli uccelli volando cadessero morti, e che fossero grandissimi terremoti.

Ed uom m'apparve scolorito e fioco
Dicendomi: che fai? non sai novella?

Morta è la donna tua, ch' era sì bella.
40 Lyra Apostolica, p. 88.
41 .. as the wise of old said ...

–διακειμένοις ούτω περίέσεσθαι Τίμων [Φλιάσιος] φησί πρώτον μεν αφασίαν, έπειτα δ' αταραξία».

63 Like Dante

- vidimi translato
Sol con mia donna a più alta salute.
Ben m' accors' io, ch' i' era più levato,

Per l'affocato riso della stella,
Che mi parea più roggio, che l' usato.

Nel vostro spirto son le mie parole.

87 . .. the passionate poet

Nam cum suspicimus magni caelestia mundi
templa, super stellisque micantibus aethera fixum, etc.

LUCRETIUS, B. v, 1202–15. 88 (1) I am terrified by the eternal silence of these infinite

spaces. (2) All earthly things are true in part, false in part. All

their principles are true, sceptics, stoics, atheists: But their conclusions are false, because the contradictory principles are true also. Those reasons which from afar seemed to bound our horizon, when we have reached it, bound no

longer: we begin to look beyond them. (3) It is frightful, to feel all that we hold securest crumble

away. (4) Seeing too much for Scepticism and too little for Faith. 89 'Tis a wise ignorance which knows itself. The quotations in the text will be found respectively on pp. 224,

vol. I: 97,11: 92,II: 215,1: 80,II: 118, II: 181, I, of Faugère's complete edition (1844). I give the references, because these passages by Roman Catholic editors have been (since 1848) so transposed and mutilated (when not omitted altogether), that they assume a meaning diametrically opposite to the author's intention. This ingenuity is no doubt profitable to the cause which it is intended to serve, but Englishmen may venture to question whether it be perfectly

just to Pascal. 90 SHELLEY: Defence of Poetry. 91 The quotations in the text are from CARLYLE's Miscellanies,

Vol. I, Burns : from Sartor Resartus, B. II, c. 9; and from

the French Revolution, Vol. I, c. 2. 94 —one of the most competent of observers.

M. D. HILL: Causes of Crime, 1857. 96 Sonnet LXVI. 97 WORDSWORTH: The Russian Fugitive. 98 Plato's graceful words,

Ο νουν έχων γεωργός ... σπουδή αν θέρους εις 'Αδώνιδος κήπους αρών χαίροι θεωρών καλούς εν ημίραισιν οκτώ γιγνομένους. ..

Phaedrus, c. lxi. 99 ... more surely than Laura's.

Lei non trov'io, ma suoi santi vestigi

Tutti rivolti alla superna strada
Veggio, lunge da' laghi averni e stigi.

PETRARCH: Son. cclxv.
the Hours rich in blossoms'.
Ωραι πολυάνθεμοι.
