THE HESPERIAN STUDENT.
to tho plastic art. "In Qrook tragcdyas In sculpturo,"
says DeQutncy, "wo read tho abstraction of a Hfo that re
poses, the sublimity of a Hfo thtt aspires, tho solemnity of
a Hfo that is removed to an infinite distance" In tho
English tragedy, on tho other hand vro hare a Hfo replete
with action and palpitating with hope a Hfo whoso
spirit is that of painting.
DeQuincoy's comparison is so admissible that I can
not refrain from quoting him at length "Into an En
glish tragody oven festivals of joy, many enter mar
riages and baptism as commemorations of national tro
phies, which or anything like which in incompatible
with tho Ycry being ol tho Greek. In that tragedy what
uniformlnlty of gloom! Tho Greek, how mournful; the
English how lumultious. Even the catastrophles, how
different. In tho Greek wo sec a breathless waiting for
a doom that cannot bo evaded a waiting, as it were, for
the last shock of an earthquake or the inexorlblo rising
of a deluge; in tho English it is like a midnight of ship
wreck, from which up to tho last aud till tho final ruin
comes, there still survives that sort of hopo that clings
to human euergies."
