Sects who dwell too insistently and exclusively upon ethics, such, for instance, as the Unitarians, have never had fsrge followings, essentially British As their Church life appears to be. At the moment, when youth is simultaneously adored and sacrificed, when poetry revives and adventure lives, it ie natural that religious.

Nicholson And A. Oxford: at Ms University Press. The Oxford University Press has published such a book.

It will delight every poetry-lover. These lovers are a largo class, for they may not be students of poetry, perhaps they very seldom give even an hour to the study of one man's work, but they will sit for many half-hours in extreme content turning the leaves of a selection. Our editors have succeeded in making their book not too devotional.

This must have been difficult, because the great English 'Mystics were for the most part intensely religious.

It is, however, Mystical poetry, not exclusively the poetry of Mystics, which is here set before us. After all, it is the modern men whose work we are most interested to see. To us, at present, the unex- pected Mysticism of the man of the world, the man of letters, the man of action, the unbeliever, even the sinner, is of the deepest interest—because it is along Mystic lines that the religious world is now feeling after assurance.

In logical debate, too, many people are sadly convinced that religion must go to the wall. The eager can- vassing of documentary evidence upon which, so few years ago, so much seemed to depend has lost its zest. But this moment of acknowledged failure may well bo the moment of revival.

Men begin to listen when they cease to argue. Hope is a matter of experience rather than reason, and men, startled by religious experience themselves, must feel a burning curiosity about the experience of others.

To leave Shakespeare out and put Whitman in strikes us m mistaken. It is not from America that we should expect Mystical poetry, yet it is there that Mysticism is most vitally affecting religion at the present moment. There is of course a Mystical element in Emerson.

His certainty that the death of dogma would never vitally affect the life of the soul is part of his Mystic tendency. The poem which begins- " This is he, who, felled by foes, Sprung harmless up, refreshed by blows!

But Emerson's Mysticism is without fervour. There is such a thing as the lyric cry in religion, and Emerson is without it.

The Divine'folly of-Blake is a better medium for pure- Mysticism. Ai his best, all but his worst, verse is now familiar to nearly every lover of poetry, but we find here one or two specimens which will be new at least to some readers. When wolves and tigers howl for prey, They pitying stand and weep; Seeking to drive their thirst away, And keep them from the sheep.

But if they rush dreadful, The angels, most heedful, Receive each mild spirit, New worlds to inherit. The dreaming few, the slaving crew, the motley caste of life— The wastrel and artificer, the harlot and the wife — They may not rest, for ever pressed by one they cannot see : The one who walked with starry feet the western road by me.

He drives them cast, he drives them west, between the dark and light ; lie pastures them in city pens, he leads them home at night. The towery trams, the threaded trains, like shuttles to and fro To weave the web of working days in ceaseless travel go.

And with aungels take ]? My essence was capacity, That felt all things ; The thought that springs Therefrom 's itself.

Let me see The seven devils that torment thee. The moon, like a flower, In heaven's high bower, With silent delight Sits and smiles on the night.
