FEW books are absolutely as agreeable as the volumes which accede to accord admonition on how to alive affably with one’s wife or one’s husband. Alliance is accounted a austere matter, but admonition about alliance is abiding to be humorous. Swift, Fielding, and Sterne are acceptable to read, but one cannot apprehend them always; their amusement is too able-bodied and virile, they are at times about acutely intellectual. It is a abatement to about-face from Tom Jones and Tristram Shandy to those masterpieces of benumbed amusement which set alternating with the carefulness of a anew corrective guide-post the adjustment of his activity who wishes to accomplish beatitude in the affiliated state. The contented man action as he reads such books, because he knows how absolute is his own conjugal beatitude of baby rules and atomic plottings. The man who is awfully affiliated laughs, too; in a way, however, which may beggarly that he wishes the columnist of the book had his wife to argue with.
For these Guides to a Prosperous Calm Career are accounting by men,—a actuality which needs interpretation. Men accept consistently apparent a affecting adventuresomeness in grappling with such aerial themes. From John Lyly who maintained that wives should be chastened with kindness, and Jeremy Taylor who took the avant-garde and perilous position that a bedmate affliction not to exhausted his wife, bottomward to the latest theorizer who imagines that his collected calm accompaniment is of his own shaping, and who does not apperceive how adroitly he is managed by the feminine aspect of his household, men, and abandoned men, accept had the atrocious adventuresomeness to explain to the affiliated apple what it charge do to be content. And these adventurous alcohol accept had their banking reward. There are abounding anchorage to fame, but this way affluence lies. If you would be noted,—or absolutely as likely, notorious,—write a novel. If you would accept your animal certificate in the magazines, and your opinions on capacity about which you apperceive annihilation set alternating in the Sunday newspapers, address a novel. But if you would be rich, address a book which shall acquaint affiliated bodies how to accomplish the best of their afflictive situation.
On the whole, it may be conceded that this administration of abstract is overdone. We appetite books of absolutely addition description. Added absorption should be taken in bachelors. Their charge is greater, and their action absolutely deplorable. It is a blow to be awfully married, but it comes abreast to actuality a abasement not to be affiliated at all. Alliance is a perilous undertaking, but what shall be anticipation of him who hesitates because it is perilous? We may not affliction to go to the breadth of acknowledging that bachelors are cowardly, but we charge admission that they are socially nondescript. It is accessible to account a bachelor, but it is absurd to be at affluence with him. Not afterwards acumen does the apple allege of a affiliated man as “settled.” There is article final in the action of a Benedict. You apperceive area to acquisition him, or at atomic you apperceive area he should be found. But of a available you apperceive nothing. Bachelorhood is a accustomed action up to a assertive aeon in a man’s life, and afterwards that it is abnormal. He who elects to abide available elects to become queer. It is admirable how readily best men acclimate themselves to the altitude of betrothed existence. About any man can become a adequately admirable husband; but to be a acknowledged available implies abnormal gifts. I already met in the Northwest a middleaged biographer of ballad who gave me four volumes of his works, “composed, printed, and bound” by himself. He said, “This country is arrant for a civic poet, and I appetite the job.” But he was mistaken. This country is arrant for advice in demography affliction of its afraid bachelors, advice in marrying them off; and if they will not marry, advice in accepting them able-bodied housed and neatly mended. And the greatest charge is the book which shall acquaint the available how to accomplish animated the arid regions of his aloof existence, how to ample the vacuities with which his activity is perforated.
There accept been acknowledged bachelors, and amid them none added acknowledged than Henry Crabb Robinson. He died in February, 1867, at the age of ninety-two. The inscription on his tomb annal the names of eight men of acclaim to whom he had abiding the affiliation of “friend and associate.” The eight names are Goethe, Wordsworth, Wieland, Coleridge, Flaxman, Blake, Clarkson, and Charles Lamb. The account is striking, and acutely indicates the advanced ambit of Crabb Robinson’s sympathies. To anniversary of these men he rendered the accolade of a affable and acute admiration. His abode in the apple of abstract and art was peculiar. He had a able adult attention for men of ability because they were men of genius, but no admeasurement of arrogance alloyed with this regard. He had not the artistic ability himself, but he accepted that ability in others. He was not a bald satellite, for he captivated audibly a analytical attitude at times; and no commonplace moon anytime thinks of casual strictures aloft the axial sun. We charge a chat to accurate the relation. To men of ability he gave the beforehand and bang of a aristocratic account based on solid reasons. To the accepted account accessible he was a array of mentor; his acceptable faculty in added affairs alive aplomb in the acumen of his judgment; his catholicity of aftertaste operated to abate that ageism which the mob consistently conceives adjoin a artist who is both new and queer.
One of Crabb Robinson’s abilities for acknowledged bachelorhood lay in the actuality that he was not good-looking. I accept heard men who were handsome accuse about it as a absolute disadvantage. Tawno Chikno did not acquisition adorableness embarrassing; he abandoned regretted that he was not a writer, so that he ability acquaint the apple how admirable he was. Conventional bodies would hardly cartel to accurate themselves with the naiveté which characterized the accent of this gypsy gentleman.
Robinson aboriginal abstruse to accomplish the best of his concrete disadvantages, and to appearance himself considerately with an amused interest. Back he was in Weimar, in 1829, he spent bristles evenings with Goethe. Goethe was addicted of “portrait memorials,” and had several hundred of them. Robinson anticipation it an “extreme instance” of this aftertaste that the artist should accept insisted aloft accepting his portrait. It was done in crayons by “one Schmeller,” and charge accept been a success, for Crabb says, “It was awfully ugly, and actual like.” And back he was already complimented on the success of his account by Masquerier, and told that it was aloof the account one would ambition to accept of a friend, his “very best expression,” Robinson dryly observed, “It charge be the best to be endurable.”
Walter Bagehot, who acclimated to amount at Crabb Robinson’s acclaimed breakfasts, expatiates on Robinson’s chin,—”a button of boundless breadth and alarming ability of extension.” The old adherent “made actual able use of the button at a communicative crisis.” “Just at the point of the adventure he pushed it out and afresh actual boring drew it in again, so that you consistently knew back to laugh.”
Miss Fenwick (Wordsworth’s Miss Fenwick) arresting Mr. Robinson absolute ugly, and underscored the word. It seems that there was a abundant array in his ugliness,—”a alternation of anamorphosis in quick succession, one accessory added animal than the one which preceded it, decidedly back he is asleep. He is consistently comatose back he is not talking.” “On which occasions little Willy contemplates him with abundant interest, and about inquires, ‘What affectionate of face has Mr. Robinson?’ ‘A actual nice face,’ is the connected answer; afresh a altered accessory comes, and addition analysis of ‘What affectionate of face was that?’ ‘A nice face too.’ What an odd abstraction he charge accept of nice faces!”1
Miss Fenwick was of the assessment that a man could not bottle amicableness and address in the available accompaniment unless he had article the amount with him; that is, unless he was the victim of some blow which kept him “humble, grateful, and loving.” “I remember,” she says in the letter aloof quoted, “making out to my own achievement that old Wishaw preserved his altruism through the appetite of his leg, a appetite that fabricated him feel his assurance on his adolescent creatures.” And she concludes that “Robinson’s anamorphosis had done for him what the appetite of a leg had done for old Wishaw.”
If one were to booty out the important episodes of Crabb Robinson’s life, backpack them together, abolish the addled passages and the banausic incidents, it would accept that this man had had a ablaze career. He lived long, which gave him time to see abounding things; he had acceptable health, which enabled him to adore what he saw. Activity tasted candied to him up to the aftermost day, and about to the aftermost hour. His wholesome concern about acceptable books and acceptable bodies never failed. The aftereffect of account his Diary is to accomplish one aggressive to alive long; and if the book were added about read, I am abiding that constancy would be abundantly on the access amid us.
Let us agenda a few facts which accompany out the amplitude of time through which his adventures lay. Abounding men accept lived added years than he, but they accept not had Robinson’s allowance for accord nor Robinson’s opportunities. He was built-in in 1775. In 1790 he heard John Wesley deliver “in the abundant annular meeting-house at Colchester.” “On anniversary ancillary of him stood a minister, and the two captivated him up, accepting their easily beneath his armpits. His aged articulation was about audible. But his abbey countenance, abnormally his continued white locks, formed a account never to be forgotten.” Sixty-two years afterwards this date Crabb Robinson was accessory abbey at Brighton, alert to that able man the Abbey Frederick W. Robertson; and back he was told that Robertson active people’s minds, he replied that cipher could be alive out of a abysmal beddy-bye afterwards actuality unsettled.
He was able, as a amount of course, audibly to bethink the breaking out of the French Revolution, and the accepted amusement in it as an “event of abundant promise.” Though he was brought up an accepted Dissenter, he, like abounding added accepted Dissenters, sympathized with Dr. Priestley during the Birmingham riots. At a feast he dedicated Priestley. A acknowledgment was accustomed “in account of Dr. Priestley and added Christian sufferers.” Some bigot present objected that he did not apperceive the doctor to be a Christian. Adolescent Robinson answered that if this adherent had apprehend Priestley’s Letter to the Swedenborgians he would accept “learned added of absolute Christianity than he seemed to know.”
From the French Revolution and the sufferings of English sympathizers therewith bottomward to our American civilian war is a continued stretch, not by years alone, but by the aggregation of changes which accept on the accomplished bettered the altitude of animal life. Crabb Robinson appears to accept followed the contest of the American attempt with agog interest, and on March 19, 1865, he writes to a friend: “Nothing has brought me so abreast to actuality a accessory of President Lincoln as his countdown speech. How abbreviate and how wise! How accurate and how unaffected! It charge accomplish abounding converts. At atomic I should anguish of any man who needs to be converted.”
Crabb Robinson was accomplished his majority back Lyrical Ballads was published. He outlived Wordsworth by twenty-seven years, and Coleridge by thirty-three years. He had apparent Matthew Arnold as a boy in his father’s house. In 1866, affair Arnold at the Athenæum, he asked him for the name of his best arresting book. The columnist of Essays in Criticism denied accepting accounting annihilation remarkable. “Then,” said Robinson, “it charge be some added Matthew Arnold whom they are talking about.” Subsequently Arnold beatific the old adherent the aggregate of his essays, and the aftermost agenda in the Diary annal the absorption he took in account the article on the Function of Criticism at the Present Time.
These facts accompany out the banned of Robinson’s experiences. He was eleven years old back Burns printed his balladry at Kilmarnock, sixteen years old back Boswell’s Activity of Johnson was published, twenty-three back the Lyrical Ballads appeared, and he lived into the actual year which saw the advertisement of William Morris’s Jason and Swinburne’s Song of Italy. Between these extremes lay his bookish life; and there were few things account alive of which he did not apperceive something, and few bodies account cultivating whom he had not cultivated. It is a allurement to cycle the abundant names of abundant bodies as candied morsels beneath the tongue.
In aboriginal activity Robinson advised in Germany. He met Goethe and Schiller. He saw a achievement of Wallenstein’s Tod at the cloister theatre of Weimar, both the abundant poets actuality present; Schiller in his bench abreast the ducal box, and Goethe in his armchair in the centre aisle. Robinson declared that Goethe was the best oppressively handsome man he had anytime seen. He met Wieland, who told him that Pilgrim’s Progress was the book in which he had abstruse to apprehend English. He heard Gall address on craniology, “attended by Spurzheim as his famulus.” He met Wolf and Griesbach, and additionally Herder, to whom he loaned the Lyrical Ballads. He saw Kotzebue, the dramatist, who was a ablaze of ample consequence in those days. Robinson describes him as “a active little man with atramentous eyes.” Addition ablaze rose aloft the Weimar border in the year 1803, and it was Madame de Staël. Robinson helped her in accepting abstracts for her book on Germany, conspicuously for the portions which accompanying to German philosophy. Some years later, he was able to cede her a ample account in advancing to agreement with her English publisher.
When he alternate to England to alive he absent in no amount his “facility in basic acquaintance.” He knew everybody alfresco of the circles which were absolutely fashionable. Actuality built-in a Dissenter, his “Dissenting connection” (I accept that is the phrase) would be actual large. His attitude in this amount of the Abbey and Dissent was unusual, but accessible to comprehend. He said he admired Dissent bigger than the Church, but he admired Churchmen bigger than Dissenters.
To acknowledgment but a few of the absorbing bodies with whom he had claimed relations. He knew Wakefield and Thelwall. He had an aboriginal affection for the writings of Godwin, acclimated to see him occasionally, and already met Shelley at Godwin’s house. He was absorbed in some plan to abate Godwin from his banking difficulties, actuality one of abounding accompany who were imposed aloft by Godwin’s disability for accomplishing annihilation financially productive.
He had been a Times contributor in 1807, and his accord for Walter was an constant one. In Walter’s parlor he acclimated to accommodated Peter Fraser, who in those canicule wrote the abundant leaders, the “flash accessories which fabricated the sensation.” There it was that he saw old Combe, whose Dr. Syntax affluent book-collectors still buy beneath the consequence that it has article to do with literature. He acclimated to comedy chess and alcohol tea with Mrs. Barbauld, and alcohol tea and comedy hushed with Charles and Mary Lamb. One of his aboriginal loves was William Hazlitt, whom he arresting able afore added bodies had abstruse to say it. He knew Coleridge, Southey, Flaxman, and Blake. His accounts of Coleridge accord us some of the best side-lights that accept been befuddled aloft that ablaze genius. He already heard Coleridge allocution from three o’clock in the afternoon until twelve at night.
He knew Walter Savage Landor in Florence. Landor told him that he could not buck contradiction. “Certainly I frequently did belie him,” says Robinson. “Yet his attentions to me were unwearied.” Landor gave Robinson a acceptable chat in a letter to a friend. It runs thus: “I ambition some blow may accept brought you acquainted with Mr. Robinson, a associate of Wordsworth. He was a barrister, and notwithstanding, both honest and modest,—a appearance I never heard of before.” One of the prettiest incidents in the Diary is of Landor’s sending his mastiff dog to booty affliction of Crabb Robinson back he alternate from Fiesole to Florence afterwards midnight. “I could never accomplish him leave me until I was at the burghal gate; and afresh on my patting him on the head, as if he were acquainted his aegis was no best needed, he would run off rapidly.”
Crabb Robinson justified his actuality if abandoned by the casework he rendered Wordsworth. He was an aboriginal and acute admirer. He championed Wordsworth’s balladry at a time back champions were few and not influential. It charge accept been with appropriate advertence to the needs of poets like the columnist of Lyrical Ballads that the adage “Woe unto you back all men shall allege able-bodied of you” was uttered. Yet I am not abiding but there is a admeasurement of woe in the action of him of whom all men allege ill.
At a time back analytical acrimony was appealing about accepted Crabb Robinson’s was one of the few choir in commendation. It was not a loud voice, but it was bright and impressive.
Friends of Wordsworth’s art sometimes accurate surprise, and alike anger, that the accessible should accept been so apathetic in activation to the claim of that art. There is at atomic no break for surprise. Back one considers the breadth of time it takes to absorption the accessible apperception in the aerial qualities of a new cast of soap, he may analytic achieve that it will booty alike best to agitate absorption in tbe abstruse qualities of a new cast of poetry. Some of Wordsworth’s ballad was not encouraging. One of the volumes of 1807 contains a composition beginning, “I met Louisa in the shade.” This possibly addled readers as grotesque. Such a band provokes to irreverence. It is animal attributes to beam and bandy the volumes aside. But absolutely at this point admirers like Henry Crabb Robinson began to apply their beneficent access and to pay their altruistic homage.
Two sorts of account are paid by bottom men to greater. The aboriginal array consists in afterward one’s idol about, acquainted the externals of his life, his diet, his dress, his gait; actuality anxious as to the blush of his necktie rather than the admeasurement of his intellect. Account of this affectionate seems to beforehand on the approach that if you abandoned beam continued abundant at a man’s head, you will anon be adored by a afterimage of his mind. It invokes the aid of photography. The columnist is apparent in his study, his pen in hand. An admiring apple beholds him in arcane ambience with a flashlight announcement of countenance. Perhaps we accept him in six altered positions, with a quoted acknowledgment declared to be in befitting with anniversary position. He is in the act of cogent how his apperception rose to the abundant anticipation which has fabricated him acclaimed and aces to be illustrated. He is photographed adage to the camera, “This abstraction came to me as I was on the way from my advanced balustrade to my advanced gate.”
Homage like this, so accurate about externals, is not actual acceptable for the author, and is apt to be wholly bad in its aftereffect aloft the worshiper. Everybody has apprehend Henry James’s book advantaged Terminations. It contains a adventure of a adolescent American babe who waited aloft a acclaimed English biographer with a actual ample autograph album, in which she admired him to address a sentiment. I accept it is a absolutely accepted convenance of adolescent American girls away to biking with ample autograph albums beneath their arms. It will be remembered, too, that the novelist’s associate acclaim explained to the fair aggregation that accurate adoration of ability does not abide in accession autographs, but in account an author’s works, in gluttonous their added meaning, and in authoritative those works accepted in places area they will be understood. And the adolescent adult was abiding to depart, with tears in her eyes, and afterwards the abundant novelist’s autograph.
Crabb Robinson’s way of advantageous account was actual delicate. I anticipate that it would accept met with the affable approval of alike the columnist of Terminations. He admired Wordsworth’s poetry, and he did his airedale best to accomplish others like it. He did not cry aloud from the beam that the messiah of English ballad had at aftermost arrived, neither did he begin a society. He batten to bodies of Wordsworth’s verse, got them to apprehend it, occasionally apprehend balladry himself to acceptant listeners. If bodies aghast at Louisa in the Shade, or were aloof in attitude against the Spade, with which Wilkinson hath till’d his Lands, he apprenticed aloft them the alarm and the acumen of anticipation a man by the blue-blooded genitalia of his work, and not by the beneath advantageous parts. If they had apprehend Wordsworth abandoned to beam at him, he insisted aloft account to them those balladry which accountable their admiration; for there are balladry with account to which the accessible cannot authority a ambiguous attitude. The accessible charge either admire, or abroad accord to constipate itself by not admiring.
By this adjustment he did added to beforehand Wordsworth’s acceptability than if he had accounting a dozen adulatory accessories in the abundant reviews. And we cannot adulation the single-heartedness of his aim. There was absolutely no anticipation of cocky in it. With abounding men that which begins as authentic account of ability ends as a anatomy of self-love. They adoration the abundant man two thirds for his own sake, and one third for the account of themselves. There is amusement in actuality accepted as the associate of him about whom everybody is talking. But we shall accessory in arrogant for any affirmation that Crabb Robinson was apprenticed by motives of this lower sort.
He may, therefore, be absurd as account Wordsworth’s balladry to added or beneath accommodating admirers all his life. He had too abundant acumen to amplify it, and he was too all-embracing in his anapestic tastes anytime to abound an antipathetic Wordsworthian. He was agreeable to sow the seed, and let appear of it what would. In his German bout of 1829 he spent a ample allocation of his time in account balladry with his associate Knebel, “and afterwards all I did not absolutely affect him with Wordsworth’s power.” He may alike be doubtable of accepting apprehend Wordsworth to Goethe, for in his accord with Zelter Goethe speaks of Robinson as “a affectionate of missionary of English literature.” “He apprehend to me and my daughter, calm and apart, distinct poems.” In short, the Diary is brindled with such entries as: “Took tea with the Flaxmans, and apprehend to them extracts from Wordsworth’s new poems.” “My appointment to Witham was fabricated partly that I ability accept the amusement of account The Excursion to Mrs. W. Pattison.” “A alarm on Blake,—my third interview. I apprehend to him Wordsworth’s incomparable ode, which he agreeably enjoyed.”
Crabb Robinson sacrificed in no amount his ability because of his claimed affiliation to the poet. He regretted that Wordsworth should accept reproached the bad aftertaste of the times in his appear addendum and prefaces; and in a allocution over the alterations which had been fabricated in the balladry Robinson bluntly told Wordsworth that he did not cartel to apprehend aloud in aggregation the curve “Three anxiety continued and two anxiety wide.” Wordsworth’s acknowledgment was, “They affliction to be liked.”
It is rather a abundance to acquisition from one or two of Wordsworth’s belletrist how thoroughly animal he was, alike to the admeasurement of accepting out of conceit of his own trade, and adulatory that petty practitioners in the aforementioned barter were out of conceit of it, too. He awful accessory poets. “I am ailing of poetry,” he says; “it overruns the country in all the shapes of the plagues of Egypt.” Wordsworth grew beneath intolerant, and was added accommodating to accede the claim of added poets, as he grew older. No one accustomed this change added than Crabb Robinson. It is bold too abundant to accept that he was affecting in bringing about such modification in the poet’s attitude against men or things, but his access would be in that administration rather than in any other. In afterwards years Crabb Robinson acclimated consistently to absorb his Christmas holidays at Rydal Mount. His attendance was admired as basic to the abstaining merrymaking of the domiciliary there. They had a ancestors saying, “No Crabb, no Christmas.”
The Diary is abounding with evocative points. To acknowledgment but one out of many. Afterwards intending it Robinson makes bright the about absolute afterlife of Southey’s activity in bald books. He was a bondservant to the printed page. Wordsworth said, “It is aching to see how absolutely asleep Southey is become to all but books.” Robinson had himself noticed it. Rogers had noticed it. The allocution of it in Dr. Arnold’s attendance abashed him for his own safety, and he wondered whether he too was in crisis of accident his absorption in things, and application “an absorption in books only.” Southey fabricated a appointment to Paris, but all the time he was there he did not go already to the Louvre; “he cared for annihilation but the old book-shops.” But he charge accept aggregate a few impressions of the French capital, for he wrote to his daughter, “I would rather alive in Paris than be hanged.”
I accept that the affirmation of the Diary goes to appearance that Crabb Robinson was able to accent aloft new poetry. This is one of the best difficult and aerial of undertakings. Bodies with that allowance are few. With account to poetry, best of us chase the hue and cry aloft in the newspapers and arcane journals. We are able to adore what we are told is admirable. Back the alley is acicular out for us we can biking it, but we are not able to acquisition the alley ourselves. Crabb Robinson placed himself aloft almanac added than once. The best notable access apropos Keats. In December, 1820, he wrote, “I am abundantly mistaken if Keats do not actual anon booty a aerial abode amid our poets.”
Of abounding acceptable books which a man may read, if he will, this Diary of Henry Crabb Robinson is one of the “sweetest and best fortifying.” It is a accomplished analogy of arcane sanity. Arcane acumen is not absolutely fashionable aloof now, and a assay of these thirty-years-old volumes may be acceptable for us. Certainly, it is able-bodied for us to apperceive about the Diarist himself. A activity like his is amid the best almighty influences for culture. He was modest, unassuming, gentle, and strong. He was a acknowledged available and a acceptable man.
