THE last of Walter Pater’s fugitive writings—if that adjective may be applied to even the least of these bits of literary journalism—is given us in “Sketches and Reviews”. Supplementing the “Essays from the Guardian", the present collection will be chiefly valued for the essay on “Aesthetic Poetry" which Pater suppressed in the second edition of “Appreciations,” feeling that its sensuous warmth gave color to the criticisms aimed at the ethics of his New Cyrenaicism. With this penetrating study of William Morris’s “Defence of Guenevere” we have a thirty-page article on “Coleridge as a Theologian,” not mentioned in Mr. Greenslet's bibliography, and seven briefer book reviews. Although slight in texture, these are not quite ephemeral: the authors dealt with are now all well known. In some cases Pater helped in the process, heralding as early as 1889 the work of Arthur Symons the poet, or discussing, two years later, Wilde’s “Picture of Dorian Gray." He wrote, too, on Mr. George Moore, who afterwards spoke of the thrill he experienced in reading the review of his “Modern Painting” by “the greatest writer in the world.” Least significant is the review of three books on Wordsworth; but the article on Lemaitre's "Serenus and Other Tales” is a fresh confirmation of Pater’s life-long interest in French literature. For it was to French models that he owed in part the peculiar qualities of his prose, and the two reviews of Flaubert’s “Correspondence” reveal him as a pupil of the great Frenchman who more than any other in two generations has imposed his ideals of form upon modern European literature. From the volume as a whole we gain no increased respect for Pater's critical acumen; the reviews are all “appreciations,” the tone invariably interpretative and kindly. Needless to say, the style has, as always, all the familiar and slightly exasperating graces of the master.
