The Doe: A Fragment (from 'wandering Willie') The Doe: A Fragment (from 'wandering Willie')

The Doe: A Fragment (from 'wandering Willie')
And--'Yonder look! yoho! yoho!Nancy is off!' the farmer cried,Advancing by the river side,Red-kerchieft and brown-coated;--'So,My girl, who else could leap like that?So neatly! like a lady! 'Zounds!Look at her how she leads the hounds!'And waving his dusty beaver hat,He cheered across the chase-filled water,And clapt his arm about his daughter,And gave to Joan a courteous hug,And kiss that, like a stubborn plugFrom generous vats in vastness rounded,The inner wealth and spirit sounded:Eagerly pointing South , lo,The daintiest, fleetest-footed doeLed o'er the fields and thro' the furzeBeyond: her lively delicate earsPrickt up erect, and in her trackA dappled lengthy-striding pack.Scarce...

Chillianwallah Chillianwallah

Chillianwallah
Chillanwallah, Chillanwallah!Where our brothers fought and bled,O thy name is natural musicAnd a dirge above the dead!Though we have not been defeated,Though we can't be overcome,Still, whene'er thou art repeated,I would fain that grief were dumb.Chillianwallah, Chillianwallah!'Tis a name so sad and strange,Like a breeze through midnight harpstringsRinging many a mournful change;But the wildness and the sorrowHave a meaning of their own -Oh of no glad to-morrowCan relieve the dismal tone!Chillianwallah, Chillianwallah!'Tis a village dark and low,By the bloody Jhelum riverBridged by the foreboding foe;And across the wintry waterHe is ready to retreat,When the carnage and the slaughterShall have paid for...

Introduction To W. M. Thackeray's 'the Four Georges' Introduction To W. M. Thackeray's "the Four Georges"

Introduction To W. M. Thackeray's 'the Four Georges'
WILLIAM MAKEPEACE THACKERAY was born at Calcutta, July 18, 1811, the only child of Richmond and Anne Thackeray. He received the main part of his education at the Charterhouse, as we know to our profit. Thence he passed to Cambridge, remaining there from February 1829 to sometime in 1830. To judge by quotations and allusions, his favourite of the classics was Horace, the chosen of the eighteenth century, and generally the voice of its philosophy in a prosperous country. His voyage from India gave him sight of Napoleon on the rocky island. In his young manhood... Essays - Post by : robertgator69 - Date : February 2011 - Author : George Meredith - Read : 3216

A Pause In The Strife--1886 A Pause In The Strife--1886

A Pause In The Strife--1886
Our 'Eriniad,' or ballad epic of the enfranchisement of the sister island is closing its first fytte for the singer, and with such result as those Englishmen who have some knowledge of their fellows foresaw. There are sufficient reasons why the Tories should always be able to keep together, but let them have the credit of cohesiveness and subordination to control. Though working for their own ends, they won the esteem of their allies, which will count for them in the struggles to follow. Their leaders appear to have seen what has not been distinctly perceptible to the... Essays - Post by : Safari - Date : February 2011 - Author : George Meredith - Read : 1208

Concession To The Celt--1886
Things are quiet outside an ant-hill until the stick has been thrust into it. Mr. Gladstone's Bill for helping to the wiser government of Ireland has brought forth our busy citizens on the top-rubble in traversing counterswarms, and whatever may be said against a Bill that deals roughly with many sensitive interests, one asks whether anything less violently impressive would have roused industrious England to take this question at last into the mind, as a matter for settlement. The Liberal leader has driven it home; and wantonly, in the way of a pedestrian demagogue, some think; certainly to the...

Leslie Stephen--1904 Leslie Stephen--1904

Leslie Stephen--1904
When that noble body of scholarly and cheerful pedestrians, the Sunday Tramps, were on the march, with Leslie Stephen to lead them, there was conversation which would have made the presence of a shorthand writer a benefaction to the country. A pause to it came at the examination of the leader's watch and Ordnance map under the western sun, and void was given for the strike across country to catch the tail of a train offering dinner in London, at the cost of a run through hedges, over ditches and fellows, past proclamation against trespassers, under suspicion of being taken...

Letters Written To The 'morning Post' From The Seat Of War In Italy
CORRESPONDENCE FROM THE SEAT OF WAR IN ITALY LETTERS WRITTEN TO THE MORNING POST FROM THE SEAT OF WAR IN ITALY FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT FERRARA, June 22, 1866. Before this letter reaches London the guns will have awakened both the echo of the old river Po and the classical Mincio. The whole of the troops, about 110,000 men, with which Cialdini intends to force the passage of the first-named river are already massed along the right bank of the Po, anxiously waiting that the last hour of to-morrow should strike, and that the order for action should be given....
