Page 375 - Mr. Ruskin's book bears so unmistakeably the marks of keen and accurate observation , of a true and subtle judgment and refined sense of beauty, joined with so much earnestness, so noble a sense of the purposes and business of art, and such a command of rich and glowing language, that it cannot but tell powerfully in producing a more religious view of the uses of architecture, and a deeper insight into its artistic principles."— Guardian.
Page 385 - These volumes contain a personal recollection of the literature and politics, as well as some of the most remarkable literary men and politicians, of the last fifty years. The reminiscences are varied by sketches of manners during the same period, and by critical remarks on various topics. They are also extended by boyish recollection, family tradition, and contemporary reading ; so that we have a sort of social picture of almost a century, with its fluctuations of public fortune and its changes...
Page 184 - There is a stern round tower of other days, Firm as a fortress, with its fence of stone. Such as an army's baffled strength delays, Standing with half its battlements alone, And with two thousand years of ivy grown, The garland of eternity, where wave The green leaves over all by time o'erthrown: What was this tower of strength? within its cave What treasure lay so lock'd, so hid ?— A woman's grave.* c.
Page 381 - Eyre* is not absent from this book. It possesses deep interest, and an irresistible grasp of reality. There is a vividness and distinctness of conception in it quite marvellous.
Page 380 - Mr. Thackeray has selected for his hero a very noble type of the cavalier softening into the man of the eighteenth century, and for his heroine one of the sweetest women that ever breathed from canvas or from book, since Raffaelle painted and Shakspeare wrote. The style is manly, clear, terse, and vigorous, reflecting every mood— pathetic, graphic, or sarcastic — of the writer.
Page 375 - Architecture,' we understand Mr. Ruskin to mean the seven fundamental and cardinal laws, the observance of and obedience to which are indispensable to the architect, who would deserve the name. The politician, the moralist, the divine, will find in it ample store of instructive matter, as well as the artist.
Page 384 - Guardian. II. WOMAN IN FRANCE DURING THE 18™ CENTURY. By JULIA KAVANAGH. 2 vols. post 8vo, with Eight Portraits. 12s. in embossed cloth. " Miss Kavanagh has undertaken a delicate task, and she has performed it on the whole with discretion and judgment. Her volumes may lie on any drawing-room table without scandal, and may be read by all but her youngest countrywomen without risk.
Page 385 - Times. III. MEN, WOMEN, AND BOOKS. 2 vols. post 8vo,' with Portrait, 10s. cloth. " A book for a parlour-window, for a summer's eve, for a warm fireside, for a halfhour's leisure, for a whole day's luxury ; in any and every possible shape a charming companion.

Page 383 - Tatler and Spectator days, and is very fitly associated with that time of good English literature by its manly feeling, direct, unaffected manner of writing, and nicely managed, wellturned narrative. The descriptions are excellent ; some of the country painting is as fresh as a landscape by Constable, or an idyl by Alfred Tennyson."— Examiner.
