as masterly in this as in other respects. But he is not always,
not often enough, alive to the paramount need. He writes with
"the verse being as the mood it paints:" but, unfortunately,
the mood is often poetically unformative. He had no passion
for the quest for seductive forms. Too much of his poetry
has been born prematurely. Too much of it, indeed, has not died
and been born again -- for all immortal verse is a poetic resurrection.
Perfect poetry is the deathless part of mortal beauty.
The great artists never perpetuate gross actualities,
though they are the supreme realists. It is Schiller, I think,
who says in effect, that to live again in the serene beauty of art,
it is needful that things should first die in reality.
Thus Browning's dramatic method, even, is sometimes disastrous in its untruth,
as in Caliban's analytical reasoning -- an initial absurdity,
as Mr. Berdoe has pointed out, adding epigrammatically,
`Caliban is a savage, with the introspective powers of a Hamlet,
and the theology of an evangelical Churchman.' Not only Caliban,
but several other of Browning's personages (Aprile, Eglamour, etc.)
are what Goethe calls `schwankende Gestalten', mere "wavering images".

--
* One account says `Childe Roland' was written in three days;
another, that it was composed in one. Browning's rapidity in composition
was extraordinary. "The Return of the Druses" was written in five days,
an act a day; so, also, was "A Blot in the 'Scutcheon".
--

Montaigne, in one of his essays, says that to stop gracefully
is sure proof of high race in a horse: certainly to stop in time
is imperative upon the poet. Of Browning may be said
what Poe wrote of another, that his genius was too impetuous
for the minuter technicalities of that elaborate ART
so needful in the building up of monuments for immortality.
But has not a greater than Poe declared that "what distinguishes the artist
from the amateur is `architectonike' in the highest sense;
that power of execution which creates, forms, and constitutes:
not the profoundness of single thoughts, not the richness of imagery,
not the abundance of illustration." Assuredly, no "new definition"
can be an effective one which conflicts with Goethe's incontrovertible dictum.

But this much having been admitted, I am only too willing to protest
against the uncritical outcry against Browning's musical incapacity.

A deficiency is not incapacity, otherwise Coleridge, at his highest
the most perfect of our poets, would be lowly estimated.

"Bid shine what would, dismiss into the shade
What should not be -- and there triumphs the paramount
Surprise o' the master." . . .

Browning's music is oftener harmonic than melodic: and musicians know
how the general ear, charmed with immediately appellant melodies,
resents, wearies of, or is deaf to the harmonies of a more remote,
a more complex, and above all a more novel creative method.
He is, among poets, what Wagner is among musicians;
as Shakespeare may be likened to Beethoven, or Shelley to Chopin.
The common assertion as to his incapacity for metric music
is on the level of those affirmations as to his not being
widely accepted of the people, when the people have the chance;
or as to the indifference of the public to poetry generally --
and this in an age when poetry has never been so widely understood,
loved, and valued, and wherein it is yearly growing
more acceptable and more potent!

A great writer is to be adjudged by his triumphs, not by his failures:
as, to take up Montaigne's simile again, a famous race-horse
is remembered for its successes and not for the races which it lost.
The tendency with certain critics is to reverse the process.
Instead of saying with the archbishop in Horne's "Gregory VII.",
"He owes it all to his Memnonian voice! He has no genius:"
or of declaring, as Prospero says of Caliban in "The Tempest",
"He is as disproportioned in his manners as in his shape:"
how much better to affirm of him what Ben Jonson wrote of Shakespeare,
"Hee redeemed his vices with his vertues: there was ever more in him
to bee praysed than to bee pardoned." In the balance of triumphs
and failures, however, is to be sought the relative measure of genius --
whose equipoise should be the first matter of ascertainment
in comparative criticism.

For those who would discriminate between what Mr. Traill
succinctly terms his GENERIC greatness as thinker and man of letters,
and his SPECIFIC power as poet, it is necessary to disabuse the mind
of Browning's "message". The question is not one of weighty message,
but of artistic presentation. To praise a poem because of its optimism
is like commending a peach because it loves the sunshine,
rather than because of its distinguishing bloom and savour.
The primary concern of the artist must be with his vehicle of expression.
In the instance of a poet, this vehicle is language emotioned
to the white-heat of rhythmic music by impassioned thought or sensation.
Schopenhauer declares it is all a question of style now with poetry;
that everything has been sung, that everything has been duly cursed,
that there is nothing left for poetry but to be the glowing forge of words.
He forgets that in quintessential art there is nothing of the past,
nothing old: even the future has part therein only in that
the present is always encroaching upon, becoming, the future.
The famous pessimistic philosopher has, in common with other critics,
made, in effect, the same remark -- that Style exhales the odour of the soul:
yet he himself has indicated that the strength of Shakespeare
lay in the fact that `he had no taste,' that `he was not a man of letters.'
Whenever genius has displayed epic force it has established a new order.
In the general disintegration and reconstruction of literary ideals
thus involved, it is easier to be confused by the novel flashing
of strange lights than to discern the central vivifying altar-flame.
It may prove that what seem to us the regrettable accidents
of Browning's genius are no malfortunate flaws, but as germane thereto
as his Herculean ruggednesses are to Shakespeare, as the laboured inversions
of his blank verse are to Milton, as his austere concision is to Dante.
Meanwhile, to the more exigent among us at any rate, the flaws seem flaws,
and in nowise essential.

But when we find weighty message and noble utterance in union,
as we do in the magnificent remainder after even the severest ablation
of the poor and mediocre portion of Browning's life-work,
how beneficent seem the generous gods! Of this remainder
most aptly may be quoted these lines from "The Ring and the Book",

"Gold as it was, is, shall be evermore;
Prime nature with an added artistry."

How gladly, in this dubious hour -- when, as an eminent writer has phrased it,
a colossal Hand, which some call the hand of Destiny and others
that of Humanity, is putting out the lights of Heaven one by one,
like candles after a feast -- how gladly we listen to this poet
with his serene faith in God, and immortal life, and the soul's
unending development! "Hope hard in the subtle thing that's Spirit,"
he cries in the Prologue to "Pacchiarotto": and this, in manifold phrasing,
is his `leit-motif', his fundamental idea, in unbroken line from
the "Pauline" of his twenty-first to the "Asolando" of his seventy-sixth year.
This superb phalanx of faith -- what shall prevail against it?

How winsome it is, moreover: this, and the humanity of his song.
Profoundly he realised that there is no more significant study than
the human heart. "The development of a soul: little else is worth study,"
he wrote in his preface to "Sordello": so in his old age,
in his last "Reverie" --

"As the record from youth to age
Of my own, the single soul --
So the world's wide book: one page
Deciphered explains the whole
Of our common heritage."

He had faith also that "the record from youth to age" of his own soul
would outlast any present indifference or neglect -- that whatever tide
might bear him away from our regard for a time would ere long flow again.
The reaction must come: it is, indeed, already at hand.
But one almost fancies one can hear the gathering of the remote waters
once more. We may, with Strafford,

"feel sure
That Time, who in the twilight comes to mend
All the fantastic day's caprice, consign
To the low ground once more the ignoble Term,
And raise the Genius on his orb again, --
That Time will do me right." . . .

Indeed, Browning has the grand manner, for all it is more that
of the Scandinavian Jarl than of the Italian count or Spanish grandee.

And ever, below all the stress and failure, below all the triumph of his toil,
is the beauty of his dream. It was "a surpassing Spirit"
that went from out our midst.

"One who never turned his back but marched breast forward,
Never doubted clouds would break,
Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph,
Held we fall to rise, are baffled to fight better,
Sleep to wake."

"Speed, fight on, fare ever There as here!" are the last words of this
brave soul. In truth, "the air seems bright with his past presence yet."

"Sun-treader -- life and light be thine for ever;
Thou art gone from us -- years go by -- and spring
Gladdens, and the young earth is beautiful,
Yet thy songs come not -- other bards arise,
But none like thee -- they stand -- thy majesties,
Like mighty works which tell some Spirit there
Hath sat regardless of neglect and scorn,
Till, its long task completed, it hath risen
And left us, never to return."
