Synopsis: This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1904. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... THE DAWN OF ROMANTICISM IN GREEK POETRY The terms ancient and modern, classical and romantic, are generally used to distinguish two great periods, two phases of thought and sentiment in the history of European literature. True and expressive as the antithesis is if properly limited and interpreted, the distinction has nevertheless often been too sharply drawn, without due regard either to the literary affinities which are unexpectedly revealed between epochs of history separated by a wide interval of time, or to the fine gradations by which the transition from one age to another is frequently marked. Many critics appear to have assumed that in the classical world of Greece and Rome the individual was not yet aware of a divided self; the harmony of consciousness remained unbroken; there was a frank and unquestioning enjoyment of existence. The breach between nature and spirit is supposed to date only from the definite triumph of Christianity over Paganism. From that time forth there is conflict and disturbance in the soul, manifesting itself in vague longings, visions, doubts, disillusions; hearts and eyes are full of regret for something lost or unattainable. The tone of feeling grows more inward and intense, the accent more individual. Poets become self-scrutinising and self-pitying. The reign of reverie and melancholy begins. A perplexed twilight has succeeded to the glad surprise of morning. The great change, however, which passed over imaginative literature under the influence of Christianity was not without preparation. Within the limits of Greek literature itself there are many premonitory symptoms of the new direction in which feeling was tending, of a new attitude towards the things of the heart, and another mode of contemplating the universe without.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Some Aspects of the Greek Genius No material changes will be found in this volume, though some slight additions and corrections have been made. The essay on The Dawn of Romanticism in Greek Poetry was introduced into the second edition. The same subject has recently received interesting and independent treatment from my friend Professor W.R. Hardie, in a chapter entitled The Vein of Romance in Greek and Roman Literature, which forms one of his Lectures on Classical Subjects (Macmillan and Co., 1903). It seems worth while to remind classical readers that, though we cannot efface the broad differences which are compendiously expressed in the terms classical and romantic poetry, the lines of distinction are not so hard and sharp as we are sometimes inclined to imagine.
