This is basically a set of lectures Morris gave and put into book-form. He seemed to believe that art was the answer to everything, though he never gives a real basis for such a belief. He just seems to think that all will go right in the world if people enjoy what they do, make and surround themselves with beautiful things, and get rid of excess and needless luxury.

Pedro Calderon de la Barca was born in Madrid, January 17, 1600, of good family. He was educated at the Jesuit College in Madrid and at the University of Salamanca; and a doubtful tradition says that he began to write plays at the age of thirteen. His literary activity was interrupted for ten years, 1625-1635, by military service in Italy and the Low Countries, and again for a year or more in Catalonia. In 1637 he became a Knight of the Order of Santiago, and in 1651 he entered the priesthood, rising to the dignity of Superior of the Brotherhood of San Pedro in Madrid. He held various offices in the court of Philip IV, who rewarded his services with pensions, and had his plays produced with great splendor. He died May 5, 1681.

The text of this edition is the same as that of the édition définitive, Paris, 1880. The unusual length of the introduction will be pardoned, it is hoped, in view of the paucity of general reviews of modern French literature that are available for students in schools and some colleges. It contains the matter which I should require a class of my own to get up for examination in connection with reading this play or any other of Hugo’s works. The Historical Note is a necessity, and is introduced before the play to save students from confusion and waste of time.

Quoi que puisse dire Aristote, et toute la philosophie, il n’est rien d’égal au tabac ; c’est la passion des honnêtes gens ; et qui vit sans tabac n’est pas digne de vivre. Non seulement il réjouit et purge les cerveaux humains, mais encore il instruit les âmes à la vertu, et l’on apprend avec lui à devenir honnête homme. Ne voyez-vous pas bien, dès qu’on en prend, de quelle manière obligeante on en use avec tout le monde, et comme on est ravi d’en donner à droite et à gauche, partout où l’on se trouve ? On n’attend pas même qu’on en demande, et l’on court au-devant du souhait des gens ; tant il est vrai que le tabac inspire des sentiments d’honneur et de vertu à tous ceux qui en prennent. Mais c’est assez de cette matière, reprenons un peu notre discours. Si bien donc, cher Gusman, que done Elvire, ta maîtresse, surprise de notre départ, s’est mise en campagne après nous ; et son coeur, que mon Maître a su toucher trop fortement, n’a pu vivre, dis-tu, sans le venir chercher ici.

Jean Baptiste Poquelin, better known by his stage name of Moliere, stands without a rival at the head of French comedy. Born at Paris in January, 1622, where his father held a position in the royal household, he was educated at the Jesuit College de Clermont, and for some time studied law, which he soon abandoned for the stage. His life was spent in Paris and in the provinces, acting, directing performances, managing theaters, and writing plays. He had his share of applause from the king and from the public; but the satire in his comedies made him many enemies, and he was the object of the most venomous attacks and the most impossible slanders. Nor did he find much solace at home; for he married unfortunately, and the unhappiness that followed increased the bitterness that public hostility had brought into his life. On February 17, 1673, while acting in “La Malade Imaginaire,” the last of his masterpieces, he was seized with illness and died a few hours later.

The age of Elizabeth, memorable for so many reasons in the history of England, was especially brilliant in literature, and, within literature, in the drama. With some falling off in spontaneity, the impulse to great dramatic production lasted till the Long Parliament closed the theaters in 1642; and when they were reopened at the Restoration, in 1660, the stage only too faithfully reflected the debased moral tone of the court society of Charles II.

Val. What, dear Élise! you grow sad after having given me such dear tokens of your love; and I see you sigh in the midst of my joy! Can you regret having made me happy? and do you repent of the engagement which my love has forced from you?

Si la vue des chefs-d'œuvre de Léonard de Vinci, exposés à Milan, suffit pour inspirer à François Ier la résolution d'attirer en France l'illustre peintre de la Cène, les voyages de Charles-Quint dans la même ville, en Toscane, à Bologne et dans les États de Venise, ne furent pas moins favorables à l'introduction de l'art italien en Espagne.

Extrait: Ce 6e volume, contenant les Lampes et les Candélabres, fait, dans notre division, la troisième partie des Antiquités d'Herculanum, et, dans des monumens plus simples, offre un degré d'intérêt qui le rend encore précieux après l'exposition des Peintures et des Bronzes. Les Lampes (lucernæ ou lychni), consacrées par les besoins usuels et par la piété, se sont tellement multipliées, qu'il en est parvenu un grand nombre jusqu'à nous; les Antiquaires les ont divisées en plusieurs classes, sous les dénominations de lampes sacrées, lampes domestiques et lampes sépulcrales.

It is difficult for the playwright to put himself, five days after the first presentation of his piece, in the situation in which he felt himself on the morning after the event; but it is still more difficult to write a preface to Vautrin, to which every one has written his own. The single utterance of the author will infallibly prove inferior to so vast a number of divergent expressions. The report of a cannon is never so effective as a display of fireworks.

À travers ses peintures élégantes et ses estampes sur bois sublimes, Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) est devenu l'un des artistes japonais les plus reconnu au monde. D'un style simple, mettant en scène des courtisanes et des acteurs célèbres, Hokusai a transformé l'art ukiyo-e en un style élaboré dépeignant la beauté de la nature au travers des représentations de paysage et de faune. Son style et ses sujets ont évolué aussi souvent que son nom, mais le talent d'Hokusai en tant qu'artiste est resté le même, et son influence dans des mouvements postérieurs tel que l'Art Nouveau et l'impressionnisme est incontestable.

John's claim to the English throne is weak and the French king demands his abdication. There follows a dizzying change of alliances, a Papal excommunication and the final poisoning of John by a monk. Throughout, "The Bastard," Richard Lionheart's son, delivers a sardonic commentary on nobility, self-interest and English sovereignty.
