to tlio plastic art. "In Greek tragcdy.Jaa In sculpture,"
says DeQuincy, "wo read the abstraction of a lllc that re
poses, the sublimity of a llfo that aspires, the solemnity of
a lifo that is removed to an infinite distance." In the
English tragedy, on the other hand wo hare a life replete
with action and palpitating with hope a lifo whoso
spirit is tint of painting.
DcQulncey's comparison is so admissible that I can
not refrain from quoting him at length "Into an En
glish tragedy even festivals of Joy, many enter mar
riages aud baptism as commemorations of national tro
phies, which or anything like which in incompatible
with the rcry being ot the Greek. In that tragedy what
unlforminity of glooml Tho Greek, how mournful; the
English how tumultious. Even the catastrctphics, how
different. In tho Greek wo see a breathless waiting for
a doom that cannot bo evaded a waiting, as it were, for
tin last shock of an earthquake or the inexorlblo rising
of a deluge, in the English It is like a midnight of ship
wreck, from which up to tho last and till the final ruin
comes, there still survives that sort of hope Uiat clings
to human energies."
