SatRtWW.nStKgKr**KK*? * ? WklHO The National Period : of American Literature I IT LISENZfl SE IRS, LIT. B? i J*rofiw>r n< American Literature in C ftrmcn University. <5 X.?Edjjar Allan Poe. fN 1844 a poem sppeared which commended Itself to many readera by the mystery and sadness with which It was tilled, combined with a certain grotesiiueucss of fancy and singular ity of phrase which caught the popu lar car and pleased the Imagination. Its title came to be associated so In timately with the author that "The Raven" was usually the next word after Toe. To this "Annabel" "Tlie Bells" and "The Lost Lenore" were sometimes added and other poeins which, like himself, seemed to belong ts some outer world far from the practicality of everyday life and from the usual deflniten-'ss of American literature In the first third of the century. This period was Just closing when John P. Kennedy did for I'oe what Willis hrd done for Bayard Taylor in bringing a writer of promise before the public. Tlie young aspirant hud met with both good and ill fortune from the start. lie was born In Boston Jan. 1!). 18)0, but of parents who staid there ouly long enough to complete a theatrical engagement, wandering ofT oil a southern circuit and both dying within two years, leaving three children to the compassion of such friends as they might happen te find. Edgar was fortunate In being taken up by the wife of a well to do trades man ot Hlrhmond. himself generous In his treatment of the precocious lad, who soon became the petted showpiece of the family. This was hie second misfortune. Five years at an English school were followed by six more of preparation for the University of Virginia in a school at home. In both he was active in athletics, a good boxer and swimmer, with one rival in scholar ship. prominent In debates and a versifier of repute, yet without intimate friends and inclined as a spoiled boy to be imperious, capricious and self willed. At the university the pursuit of knowledge in those days was relieved by punch and card playing for money. His good fortune be managed to turn Into evil by contracting gambling debts to the amount of about $2,500, which Mr. Allan, his foster father, declined to pay. and, taking tlie wayward youth borne nt tlie end of the year, he placed him In his own counting room, from which Toe broke loose and went to Boston. He took with him as capital with which to begin life once more In that city at the age of IS a bundle of short poems, which lie persuuded another young man to print in a tliiu volume of 40 pages, entitled "Tamerlane and Other Poems, by a Bostonlan." During two years In the army and six months at West Point the other poems. Includ ing a revision of "Tamerlane," were composed, to he published in 1831 in New York. Among these were "Helen," "The Doomed City," "The Sleeper," "Lenore" and "The Valley of Unrest," not all of tlieni as they now appear, but a long stride ahead of his Boston book. The forthcoming power of his weird Imagination and the enchantment of his unique dietiou begin to show themselves. He might truly say: a I have reached these lands but newly From an ultimate dim Thule, From a wild, weird clime that lieth sublime' Out of space, out of time. And he suggests rather than describes: Bottomless vales and boundless floods And chasms and caves and Titan woods. With forms that no man can discover For the dews that drip all over; Mountains toppling evermore Into seas without a shore Seas that restlessly aspire. Surging unto skies of fire Lakes that endlessly outspread. This Is the dreamland, ghoul haunted and demon peopled, where his sad eye wanders, seeing shapes and visions which come only to one who is afflicted with intellectual delirium tremens. Then, again, he would catch glimpses of seraphic splendor and soar to the zenith in his song of "Israfel:" In heaven a spirit doth dwell WhOBe heartstrings are a lute. None sings so wildly w ell As the nugel Israfel. And the giddy stars, so legends tell. Ceasing their hymns, attend the spell Of his voice, all mute. Then he feels the dragging of the earthly ball and chain and descends to this; If 1 could dwell Where Israfel Hath dwelt, and he were 1. He might not sing so wildly well A mortal melody, While a bolder note than this might swell From my lyre within the sky. The verse Is the type of the poet himself, in whom aspiration was always contending with limitation in bitter strife, like Ormuzd and Ahriman, the good angel and the bad of the Persian myth, and sometimes it must have seemed lo him like the single handed warfare of Michael the archangel against the devil. There will always arise the temptation to Join the party of accusers or of apologists so soon as the element of the personal life mingles with the litera ture which an author has created. How far the balance will list to one side or the other depends in such a case as this upon belief in heredity on the one hand and in the abil ity of the inheritor of evil bent and bias to strengthen the brain as be grows up and lives on. It', however, a moral weakness to resist be added to strong appetite in the inheritance, it would seem that the child should have large allowances made for an almost inevitable wreck. Perhaps in Poe's Instance the lapses Into inebriety were not so culpable as the seeming perversity with which he threw away those opportunities and advantages which would lrave gone far to retrieve a false start in life, for which he was no more responsible than for the good fortune of being boru in Boston. Indeed throughout his checkered career he displayed remarkable facility for snub bing main chances. Nevertheless lie contrived to foe. live jjy his pen for 17 years. It Is the work of that period more than his manner of life that is of present concern. It began in Baltimore with winning a prize of $100 offered by a weekly paper for the best prose tale. This was accompanied by a poem which would have taken another prize if two premiums had been allowed to go to one author. The recommendation of the committee of award that he should print such stories as he had on hand was a compensation and gave bim an encour aging start with the paper above mentioned. Magazine editorship soon fol lowed. with an apprenticeship in story writing. "Llgela," "The Haunted I'alace," "The Fall of the House of I'slier," some "Literary Small Talk" and book notices, with a textbook on eonchology, be long to tlds period. Ills stories soon amounted to 2."i In number and were pub lished as his installment of prose. The same characteristics are prominent as hi ids verse, but even more pronounced. lie deals witli the realm of the im probable bordering on the Impossible. To this he sometimes gives the appear ance of likelihood by attempts to account for his invented occurrences on ?cientilic principles, lie also employs a direct and explicit style, in itself tarrying an impression of truth, but it Is only to give reality to shadows and the similitude of fact to that which in the nature of tilings could not be. As hi his verse, the titles of his prose tales are full of dark suggestion and the fascination that goes with It. "The Facts In the Case of M. Valdemar," "Mesmeric Revelation." "The Black Cat." "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Premature Burial," "The Mark of the Red Death, I'lie Murders In the Rue Morgue." "The Mystery of Marie Roget"? all these and others like them are suggestive of enigmas, disasters and crimes. They are dark cotnplexioued themes, shadowy with twilight forms gliding on unholy errands. They give glimpses of an outer limbo where the inhabitants of another world hover on the borders of this with fell intent or sad remi niscence. The stories themselves fullill the promise of their titles. They reek with horrors. Delusions that prove fatal, remorse that follows involuntary crime, tombs that are prisons, vaults for those who cannot die. low hanging clouds, j starless glootn. trees swaying in windless air. cold, slimy walls, vermin haunt ed dungeons, despair and death?these are the lurid points In a symphony of black and red. Sometimes, ns in "The Domain of Arnheim," there Is lavished a profusion of oriental color?melodies, odors, shrubberies, birds, flowers, sil ver streams, pinnacles and minarets flashing In red sunlight, the phantom architecture of fairies. Poe has bad numerous imitators, especially in the line of the detective story, who have shown at least how dangerous It Is to walk the narrow wny which he chose to trend and by his careful stops keeping himself from top pling over Into the depths of ludicrous pathos. Such followers have not been < born to be mystics, alchemists and Jugglers in the Mack art. like Poe. In whoso Blind, as In the seven chambers of his Prospero's castellated nbbey, there stalked a multitude of weird dreams in the cnniival of "The Red Death." But If one wishes now and then to get far out of the highways of literature Into the land whloh lies neirt to the unseen and the unknown, whither only ?ne^r two in a eentury have gone and returned with even a plausible account ?f What they have seen, then this gloomy, wayward, but second sighted spirit will be K?e most satisfactory guide. fPoucrlrtt. 1000.1 woMAiiiiyEFj A really healthy woman has lit- I tie pain or discomfort at tne I menstrual period.
