We know that there was an older play by Thomas Kyd, that extraordinary dramatic (if not poetic) genius who was in all probability the author of two plays so dissimilar as the _Spanish Tragedy_ and _Arden of Feversham_; and what this play was like we can guess from three clues: from the _Spanish Tragedy_ itself, from the tale of Belleforest upon which Kyd’s _Hamlet_ must have been based, and from a version acted in Germany in Shakespeare’s lifetime which bears strong evidence of having been adapted from the earlier, not from the later, play. Swinburne was not tormented by the restless desire to penetrate to the heart and marrow of a poet, any more than he was tormented by the desire to render the finest shades of difference and resemblance between several poets. His ways of thinking and feeling isolate him from both the Elizabethan and the later Caroline mind. It would have been construed into lukewarmness and cowardice not to have done so.

It is not beyond the possibilities, of course, that his own fresh point of view may one day succumb to formalism–that his little Orphant Annies and his raggedy men may become familiar to posterity through the work of a school of copyists who prefer to write about an Indiana that they never saw in a period when they never lived, instead of going themselves to the fresh inspiration of the realities about them.

THE MAYA. This _bush-fighting_ is not regarded as fair play among scientific men. Men, from the very indolence of their minds, love to set up symbols and to worship them, without verifying the truths they are supposed to represent, for symbols are easily acquired and easily perceived, and dispense with the arduous necessity of probing reality and the mental discipline without which truth cannot be reached. The accounts which are given of Anaximander, Anaximenes, Anaxagoras, Archelaus, the successors of Thales, represent the doctrines of those sages as full of the most inextricable confusion.

A consequence of this recognition of the relation of the laughable to our laughter as a whole is that we shall need to alter our method of treating the subject. {14c} The spring tides are highest and the neap tides lowest about the beginning of the year; for the earth being nearest the sun about the first of January, america essay child hunger in must be more strongly attracted by that body than at any other time of the year: hence the spring tides which happen about that time, will be greater than at any other time, and should the moon be new or full in that part of her orbit, which is nearest to the earth at the same time, the tides will be considerably higher than at any other time of the year. The objects or ideas are the same in both cases, if that were all: but this is not sufficient to prove that they must have the same accompaniments, or associations, because in the one case they are impressed on different minds, and in the other on the same mind at different times, which is expressly contrary to the principle of association, unless we assume by the help of a verbal sophism that the same generical idea is the same associated idea, and this again would lead to the absurd consequence above stated.
