Adelaide Southern Cross (Newspaper) - May 25, 1928, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia books and men a weekly commentary on things literary special to the Southern Cross by Matthew Paris Edmund Gosse. Few literary men have been More intimate. In their personal relations than Thomas Hardy and Edmund Gosse were and now both Are dead. Hardy some months ago passed from the places where men walk to meet the reality the existence of which he questioned this Side of the grave. Gosse went to his eternal Reward last week. Both added their share to English tetters and if Hardy had the deeper Genius Gosse was the More versatile of the two. Everything he did in literature he did Well. But. Apart from that remarkable Book " father and son Little of his work was it with the fires whose ceaseless flame is immortality. / � afr i remember Reading for the first time in the Adelaide Public Library his on viol and flute the contents of which it was a Book of verse of course were Correct pleasingly. Musical and achieved but which were obviously echoes from the elder sons of song. In Francis Thompson s phrase Gosse " came in rearward of the throats of song but he remembered the melodies from those throats and in Correct and colourful verses reproduced them in minor strains. The influence of Tennyson and Swinburne were very noticeable in Gosse s lines. He was a Friend of and member of the same school As Austin Dobson and Lang and like them was Given to measures that called less for inspiration than for ingenuity. He was in his moments a poet if Only a minor one but he was More of a writer of Happy if not altogether memorable Goose was a skilful biographer. His was an accomplished manner of giving the necessary setting in words to his subject. But he wrote no very " great biography. He lacked Pas Sion in this sort As he did in his poetry. What i mean is that while he was always accurate and eminently readable he did not make his Chara Eler or subject leap upon us As it were with All his blushing honors or a blushing blemishes thick upon him. He possessed Little analysis of human character save when some depth of intimacy As in the Case of his Book upon his relations with his lather moved him. There was some thing a Little anaemic about his biographies that upon Swinburne being the least open to this charge. He knew Swinburne even if he did not altogether love Swinburne s keeper Watis Dunton. Gosse s Best work was in criticism. wide knowledge of books he was a librarian and Bookman All his life got play and application. His criticisms were less deep and sustained examinations of work or writer than entertaining felicitous literary essays. But always they contained shrewd judgments and eloquently phrased estimates. These modest forms of literary portraiture and appraisal were admirably suited to Gosse s Powers and taste and in a number of works he has left us some striking essays on old and con temporary writers. He had an Especial liking for the 18th Century and has written most engagingly of Many of its great figures. He was acquainted with Browning with swin Burne the Rossetti Patmore and Many other writers. He has written wisely and with knowledge of Many of these of Christina Rossetti of Stevenson of Pater of Andrew bang and others Hie was greatly Atic thed to Steven Soto who5 valued his Hista feted counsel and who wrote him Many letters. Of he said " he became the most exquisite writer of his generation yet those who lived close to my Are Apt to a think less of this than of the . He was the most unselfish and the most lovable of human it is a thought worthy of recording and worthy of being recalled in a Day when Stevenson s reputation both As Man and writer is being attacked. Of Pater Gosse could say with effective phrase and with no Little critical insight " the perennial conflict in Hig members Between his exquisite instinct for corporeal Beauty on the one hand and his tendency to ecclesiastical symbology on the other is the secret i think of what made the character of Pater so difficult for others to elucidate in some measure also so painful and confusing for himself. He was not All for Apollo nor All for Christ but each deity swayed him and neither had that perfect homage that brings peace be Hind that is a discerning state ment As All who have any acquaint Ance Kwh Pater know though few read Pater s " polished and concentrated work As Gosse called it for the views or message it contains. Most read it for its manner which save for a few passages is too heavy aired and artificial. I opened by coupling the names of Edmund Gosse and Thomas Hardy. I will conclude in the same fashion by quoting from a dedication to the latter by Gosse. " take the Little Book then wrote Gosse " for the Sake of the Comrade and not of the critic. Take it As a landmark in that Friendship to me inestimable precious which has now lasted More than Twenty years and will continue i Hope and think unbroken till one or other of us can enter into no further earthly and now both have passed from the Fields and places where earthly relations " subsist those relations which Are for them Over for Ever. Casserie. Benedict Fitzpatrick has followed his " Ireland and the making1 of Britain with " Ireland and the foundations of the work of Irish scholars monks and Pilgrim for european culture in the years when Europe was barbarous and clouded is Illumin tingly recorded by one who is completely of his subject. Ireland in those years was one huge University and with love of and reverence for its great past 1 Benedict Fitzpatrick has written his Book. I remember an article in " ame Rica by Benedict Fitzpatrick in which he attacks the View that shake Speare possessed a great intellect. A Agres that " the Bard was a consummate contrived of splendid phrases but he endeavours to substantiate the Point that Shakespeare was not upon the same intellectual plane As the great scientists discoverers and thinkers. It was i remember a most provocative and original article with something of a Jhavian audacity about its Central concept. But i do not share its author s opinion.

Those of them who Are will agree that in every Way it is for variety of Reading get up and Excel Lence of illustrations one of the most notable of magazines.
