244 ページ - In peace, Love tunes the shepherd's reed; In war, he mounts the warrior's steed; In halls, in gay attire is seen; In hamlets, dances on the green. Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, And men below, and saints above ; For love is heaven, and heaven is love.
235 ページ - Kock engrosses public attention as much as the prices of the funds, the mensures of the ministers, or the war in Spain. He is a Monsieur Tonson whose existence is interminable. " Nor is his popularity alone confined to France : it extends to every corner of Europe where books are read. In religious — in strict — in domestic communities, are his works devoured with as much enthusiasm as they are by the indolent and luxurious Pa risians.
234 ページ - France that does not possess one or more complete sets of his works: there is not a news-room where, amongst the few dozens of standard books which grace the little shelf in the corner, the novels of Paul de Kock are not to be found. His popularity extends to the meanest and most distant cottage in the empire: there exists not a labourer who tills the land in the remotest province, that has not heard of Paul de Kock, and laughed at some village pedant's recital of the best episode in his last work.
236 ページ - But let it not be supposed that Paul de Kock can write nothing save humorous tales. His sentiment will frequently wring tears from the eyes. No one can peruse passages of Sceur Anne, Frere Jacques, or La Laitiere de Montfermeil, without experiencing the most tender emotions; but no lasting impression is made upon the mind by the scenes which M. de Kock thus envelopes in pathos and melancholy, because the almost immediate occurrence of something excessively ludicrous effaces the reminiscence of the...
234 ページ - Colonel of the regiment, to the private sentinel in the ranks, — all have perused the novels of this distinguished writer — all classes have pored over those pages which teem with gaiety and mirth, relieved by the finest touches of pathos and feeling — all have felt the magic charm of this great enchanter! A new novel by Paul de Kock creates a more powerful sensation than the speech of the King himself; and on the day of publication, not a diligence, not a mail, not a public conveyance leaves...
233 ページ - ... .writer ; that is to say, if the extent of a man's reputation be judged by the number of his readers. From the highest lady in her luxurious boudoir, to the poorest grisette in her miserable attic, — from the lordly paladin in his spacious library, to the obsequious porter in his narrow lodge, — from the statesman who mounts the tribune in the Chamber of Deputies, to the copying clerk in the attorney's office, — from the Colonel of the regiment, to the private sentinel in the ranks, —...

10 ページ - ... of attachment were, as it is reported — but how truly, we know not — wantonly broken by him who ought to have been proud of the woman whose incipient genius he could not but have perceived. Hence — in an age and a city of pleasure and temptation — exposed to all those dangers which are ever to be encountered by beauty and talent— and gifted with a soul as full of poesy and love as her imagination was of richness and originality, did the baroness yield to the exigencies of her nature...
223 ページ - ... Cheverino, situated within two cannon-shot of our bivouac. It was large and red, as it usually is when it rises. But this evening it appeared to me of an extraordinary size. For an instant the redoubt stood out in shadow on the shining disk of the moon. It resembled the cone of a volcano at the moment of eruption. An old soldier, near whom I was standing, remarked the colour of the moon.
xiv ページ - Thus regenerated, and suddenly raised from a state of slavery to a position of comparative freedom, the people felt their ideas expand; and they imparted to their writings that spirit which fired their souls. Their intelligence increased in magnitude — their understandings were enlarged — and they embodied in their fictions, as well as in their histories, the substance of the new ideas they had so unexpectedly and so abruptly acquired.
