Art. I. The Rape of Proserpine: with other Poems from

are glad to see that the poems of Claudian have found a translator not unworthy of their excellence. Intermingled with instances of bad taste, they contain beauties of a high order, which mere English readers are unable to enjoy. With a good deal of tenderness they display luxuriance of style, redandance of epithet, and a considerable portion of extravagance. They partake of the character of the age in which their author flourished; yet they frequently call to mind the better days of Roman poetry, and the classic graces of the reign of Augustus.

The shortness of the period, during which the literature of Rome retained its purity, appears remarkable, when we contemplate the monuments it has left for the admiration of succeeding ages. The space which produced those specimens of genius, which mankind have often taken as their models, was singularly narrow. During the whole period of Roman History—from the foundation of the city to the establishment of the imperial government, we discern but transient and slight indications of that rich vein of poetry which afterwards shone with such lustre. The proud succession of consular triumphs, and the terrible struggles with which the republic was distracted, occupied the whole of the national mind, and prevented it from seeking the more still and unobtrusive kinds of glory. The eye was too much dazzled by the glare of victory, to be able to turn with satisfaction to the creations of fancy and imagination. But when once the summit of ambition was attained, and the contending factions had begun to repose beneath the shade of the imperial authorities, the

poetical genius burst forth without almost any appearance of youth-uniting the wildness and sublimity of original talent, with the chasteness and purity of cultivated taste. But the splendour was too great to be durable. The vice and heartlessness of despotism became more injurious to public taste, than the most tumultuous of democratic contentions. The powers of the muse were wasted in abject flattery; and luxurious slavery deprived the mind at once of elasticity and elegance. Yet, even in this declension of vigour, something like the ancient beauty occasionally shone forth. In the later writers we find much that is calculated to repay us for their extravagances; and in few do we discover more of this redeeming quality, than in the poet before us. NO. IV. Aug. Rev. VOL. I.
