IN the eighteenth century it was expected of a poet that he should instruct as well as interest; traces of this frame of mind are noticeable in much nineteenth-century poetry, and they are still present in our academic, correct, sound, whatever you choose to call it, criticism. The ordinary reviewer's preoccupation with a poet's "message" is another eighteenth-century relic. The poets of the nineteenth century – and, indeed, of many other centuries – who have most influenced the younger generation departed from this rule. They did not presume to instruct nor consciously to "elevate" their audience, but were content to render life as they saw it, leaving the reader to form his own judgment, treating him as a reasonable equal, not as a child or an inferior, to be impressed by recondite knowledge, by bombastic language and high-falutin' sentiments. From a passion for general ideas we have been converted to a passion for diverse personalities; we easily grow weary of generalities, but there can never be in the world too many curious or interesting or fantastic personalities. We have come to refuse to attribute an immense superiority to the writers of "classic" periods, the Attic tragedians, the Augustan poets, the authors of le grand siècle, and the Elizabethans; we do not, indeed, deny their genius, but a modern, who reads poetry for love of it and not from a sense of duty nor from compulsion, tends to widen very greatly the scope of his reading, to forgive vast quantities of so-called "faults" in poetry provided that the words give him the sensation of being in contact with a new. unique personality. Such an attitude may or may not be "decadent" – it is probable that it has nothing to do with decadence – but for better or for worse it has become the attitude of a large and active part of the modern intellectual world.

We do not nowadays expect a poet to profess pious and probably hypocritical sentiments; to parler raison et vertu is now as affected as to parler Euphues; we immediately suspect that the poet who professes so great virtue, or so profound sympathy, or so altruistic an interest in humanity, is recording what he ought to be rather than what he is. It may be the scientific spirit, it may be the devil, it may be from ennui, it may be from a healthy interest, but it is true that we are now primarily interested in the poet's personality whether he reveal it consciously or unconsciously. Whenever I read Racine or Virgil I find that to keep up my interest I have to tell myself what wonderful men they were, that they really existed, that they ate and drank and [110] fell in love and committed follies and eccentricities and generosities like any other human being. On the other hand, when I read Catullus or some modern Frenchman I find my interest in their world so intense that I do not need to use any artifice to re-kindle my interest.

The limited faculties of each one of us give us one world and only one, but every artist has fixed for us his world, and vicariously we can re-live his most poignant moments, we can increase our sensations, our existences. How curiously monotonous, even to the most sensitive and most imaginative nature, must life have been before the arts were devised to admit us into the different worlds perceived by the greatest of our fellows.
