NOTES ON BOOKS, ETC.
The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri, translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Inferno. (Routledge.) The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri, translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Purgatorio. (Routledge.)
The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri, translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Paradiso. (Routledge.) The great works of great poets should be translated by masters of the art. George Chapman, Pope, and Cowper, busied themselves to tell in English the great Homeric story; and glorious John did not think it beneath him to translate for English readers the writings of the Mantuan Bard. In the same way Dante has here found an able and sympathising translator in one who has won his own wreath of laurel, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Mr. Longfellow has many qualifications for the labour of love which he has undertaken. In the first place he has the great one of true poetic feeling, which enables him to sympathise with his author, and thoroughly enter into his spirit and feeling. Next, he is well versed in the wide range of Dantesque scholarship: so that the three volumes before us present us, not only with an admirable version of The Divine Comedy, but a large body of notes and illustrations, well calculated to make the English reader understand and appreciate more fully the scope and object of that mighty work.
A Martyr to Bibliography: a Notice of the Life and Works of Joseph-Marie Querard, Bibliographer. Principally taken from the Autobiography of Mar Jozon D'Erquar (Anagram). With the Notices of Gustave Brunet, J. Asseyat, and Paul Lacroix (Bibliophile Jacob), and a List of Bibliographical Terms after Perquin. With Notes and Index. By Olphar Thomas, Esq., &c. (Russell Smith.)
A little volume of great interest and value. Of great interest for the amount of information it contains relative to the life and labours of one who was in sooth a martyr to the art he loved so well; and of great value because it may awaken in all who read it a juster estimate of the importance of bibliography. Our readers will probably recognise in the anagrammatic name of the author a gentleman to whom "N. & Q." has been frequently indebted for valuable bibliographical communications.
A Complete Concordance to the Poetical Works of John Milton. By Charles Baxter Cleveland, LL.D., Author of the "Compendiums of English, American, and Classical Literature." (S. Low.)
What, the reader may exclaim, another Concordance to Milton! Yes, indeed, and not before it was wanted. Dr. Cleveland tells us that, having occasion to consult Todd's Index in connection with Lycidas, he found the first two references to which he turned to wrong. Further examination disclosed sixty-three mistakes in its references to that short poem of 193 lines. More or less time daily, for upwards of three years, did the Doctor devote to a Verbal Index of Milton's Poetical Works, in the course of which he discovered no less than three thousand three hundred and sixty-two mistakes in the Index of his predecessor. This Concordance was originally published twelve years ago; since that its accuracy has been tested by private scholarship and public criticism, and not found wanting. Mr. Low has therefore done good service by placing this handsome volume, which is applicable to all editions, in the hands of the admirers
of John Milton.
