“ For bringing her down from the clouds, for illustrating that power of sympathy and fascination which adorned her life with so many fervent friendships, for setting forth her noble devotion to practical duty, Mr. Higginson deserves the cordial thanks of all Margaret Fuller's admirers.” – New York Tribune.

“ The author has had ample material for his work, - all the material now available perhaps, and has shown the skill of a master in his use of it. . . . It is a fresh view of the subject, and adds important information to that already given to the public. Mr. Higginson throws new light on the family connections and early years of Margaret Fuller, and gives the best account we have yet had of what is termed the “Transcendental' epoch in American literature, and of the origin and history of · The Dial,' its representative organ.” Boston Advertiser.

“An instructive, charming, and in. spiring book, perfect in its style, noble in its reserves, abounding in quiet humor and rare bits of personal reminiscence.” Christian Register.

An unexpected richness of new matter, which gives the book a value of its own and presents the heroine in a light somewhat different from that which commonly occurs." — Springfield Republican.

“As the genius of Goethe recreated the 'Faust' legend and made it his own for all time, so Josephine Preston Peabody has set the seal of ownership upon the story of the ‘Pied Piper of Hamelin.' The comparison is a daring one, but those who have read the tragedy of 'Marlowe' will have acquired the habit of regarding this writer as a dramatic genius. Her work is more than a prophecy, it is an instalment of the new drama, the basis of which is a courageous and non-apologetic idealism."

San Francisco Chronicle.

“ The character of • The Piper' is one of the most human and lovable in modern literature. To play it would require rare gifts. ... Its construction makes it all the finer as a vehicle for human character, expressing itself in really noble poetry.” Boston Herald.

ELIZABETH BISLAND author of AT THE SIGN OF THE HOBBY-HORSE

[ocr errors]

“ Deserves warm praise from all who read and think. There's masculinity — for breadth of view — in each one of the Bisland essays, yet the style has a delightful femininity of grace and suppleness. With close, clear reasoning along the ways of human nature does the author mate a happy, healthy, sometimes whimsical and always kindly humor.” — Chicago Inter-Ocean.
