ON THE EPIC POETRY AND DRAMA
OT GERMANY.

One of the most striking as well as interesting and engaging traits of the character of the Germans, is the devoted attachment which they bear to the ancient history and literature of their own country. In this they are unequalled by any other nation in Enrope; and with good reason on more accounts than one. Two different causes—one, the character of the ancient history and literature of Germany itself, and the second (what no one would expect) the modern regulations of the press in that country—both contribute to this result. Whatever may he thought of the restriction of the press in a moral and political iwint of view, certain it is, that the charge which has Wta brought, apparently with justice, against its existence in Spain and Italy, as to its effect on the literature of those countries, is not applicable to Germany, at least to the northern and Protestant part of the country. So far from that being the rase, it seems to be undeniable, that the state of the press in Germany is the most favourable to the higher and more elegant branches of literature that can possibly be. While the topics of the day, and all matters of a controversial nature, which constitute so large a portion of the present ephemeral literature of England and France, arc strictly prohibited, all the higher departments of writing, works of learning, criticism, and imagination, that class which is peculiarly entitled to the name of literature (since on it chiefly the literary celebrity of every nation depends) and which alone is in its nature immortal—all these are not only tolerated, but patronized to a greater degree than in any other country of Europe. It is pleasant to be able thus to find good arising out of evil, and intellect promoted by the very means that appear employed to check it, without, however, asserting that the regulation is a good one on the whole, or to be followed by other nations, or even that more good would not result to Germany itself from a free press, than exists at present under a restrained one. It is sufficient to show that it is not a mere evil; that it not only permits, but produces some good, though it may be of a lower order.

But the chief cause which has rendered the study of their own antiquities so interesting to the Germans, is seated in the nature of those antiquities themselves. They are both more romantic and interesting in themselves than those of any other nation, unless Spain may be an exception, and also more closely connected with the present state of the country than any where else. Ancient Greece and Italy, not to mention Egypt and the East, are separated from those countries in their modern state by a chasm which makes them belong to a different world: France has neither ancient recollections to look back to, nor a turn of mind to value them if it had: and England is so much more interested in present and practical matters, that she looks back with more contempt than veneration on the past, and thinks more on how much we have advanced beyond our ancestors than how much we owe to them. But the German genius is essentially retrospective; it carries this disposition to the antiquities of other nations as well as its own; and what is peculiarly worthy of remark, this study with them does not, as among the individuals of other nations, terminate in itself, and become a mere mass of learning heaped up, but infuses itself into their whole train of thinking; and, ingrafted on modern intellect

and genius, produces new combinations, like earth brought from a distance, renewing and invigorating the soil with which it mingles. This is particularly observable in the four great stars of German literature, Goethe, Schiller, Wieland, and Herder.

But, in the whole domain of antiquity, whether foreign or domestic, there is no work which has excited this spirit so deeply and universally in Germany as The Nibelunyen Lied. It holds nearly the same place in German poetry as the Odyssey in ancient Greece (it would be doing it great injustice to put it on a level with the Iliad, to which it is far superior in conduct and iucideut, though infinitely inferior in language, descriptions, and insulated passages), or as Shakspeare among ourselves. It was not till the middle of the last century that it appeared in print at all, being first published, and that only in part, by the celebrated poet and critic, Bodmer, in 1757. The whole of it was afterwards made public by Miiller, in 1782. Even after this, it does not appear to have attracted any attention during the remainder of that century. The first person who had the honour of bringing its extraordinary merits into public view, was Von Hagen, a Prussian nobleman of great spirit and talent, who, in 1807, gave an edition of it, in which the original dialect was modernized, though at the same time with as little alteration as possible, and thus the work was for the firstfimc rendered generally intelligible and popular, while at the same time the versification and spirit of the original were faithfully preserved: a mode of alteration that might perhaps be advantageously applied to some of our oldest poets, and much better than the paraphrases of Chaucer by Drydeu and Pope, which scarcely give any idea of the original. Since then the work has continued increasing in popularity with an acceleration equal to that of Shakspeare among the English. Editions, translations, commentaries, and illustrations of all sorts have been multiplied in rapid succession almost every year; it has been selected as the subject for a national gallery of pictures along with the Iliad and Odyssey, by the King of Bavaria, to adorn the Grand Museum at Munich; and, to pass over a shoal of minor poets and writers who have taken the subject for their theme, it has been celebrated by the two greatest living poets of Germany in their respective departments, having been made the subject of a romance by Fouque, the German Walter Scott, and of a tragedy by Raupach, which, though of a much lower order of merit than others of his productions, and bearing marks of his usual rapidity and carelessness, is perhaps the greatest favourite, on the whole, of the modern German theatre.

The poem of The Nibelungen Lied, is fully worthy I of all the admiration it has excited in its own country, and even out of it, with all those who can enter into the spirit and genius of ancient poetry. It is incomparably superior to any other relic of the middle ages, and possesses several attractions entirely peculiar to itself, and not shared by any other production. It is the only perfect epic poem of its time, and is remarkable both for its resemblance to, and its difference from, the classical models of antiquity. Tried by the rules of Aristotle, it is faulty in almost every particular; it violates, in its form, all the unities that can be violated in epic poetry; while, in its substance, it possesses a greater unity than perhaps any of them, except the Odyssey—the unity of in

terest. The poem takes in the portentous space of 35 years; and yet the divisions of time are so admirably made, and serve so well to mark the different pauses in the action, that they are perhaps rather a beauty than a defect. The same persons, with only one exception, continue in action throughout the whole poem, although, in the latter part, many new ones are introduced, which, without breaking at all the unity of the interest, greatly increases the variety. In this respect, it has the advantage over perhaps every other epic poem in existence; even Tasso's "Jerusalem Delivered," which most resembles it (for Ariosto is not to be mentioned among epic poets), is inferior to it in this respect. Along with this, it has the very different and apparently contrary merit of extreme simplicity carried almost to a fault, as is usual with the ancient poems of all except the classic nations, but still far removed from the baldness that generally accompanies that simplicity. This is visible both in the language and the plan. The former has not the slightest pretension to ornament or harmony, and yet neither of those qualities is missed. Though there is nothing musical in the verse, yet it is not labour thrown away: it would not answer as well in prose; for there is something poetical, though one cannot tell what it is, in the pause at the end of the line and the stanza, and in th%Thyme of the couplet. As to the plan, it is the most perfectly inartificial that it is possible to imagine, and strongly confirms the probability of its being (as indeed the author professes) a faithful record of older legends strung together by him into an epic poem, which is also proved by the great number of legends on the same subject still extant.—Having given our readers an idea of the general character of the poem, we proceed to lay before them an account of its plan and contents. It consists of 9640 lines, a length nearly corresponding to that of the MneiA, and is divided into 39 cantos or sections. The subject is, in the first part, the adventures of Siegfrid, the Arthur of Germany ; and in the second, the war between Guntlier, the King of the Franks, and Attila, the celebrated King of the Huns. The two stories are united, and the latter made poetical instead of political by the agency of Chriemhild, the wife of Siegfrid, whose revenge for the death of her husband (an event which occurs, too early for the wishes of most readers, a little before the middle of the poem) forms the subject of the latter half, as in some manuscripts it gives the title to the whole.

But our present object is not to give an analysis of the poem, nor to point out the numerous beautiful passages in which it abounds, but to give an idea of its general character, as the national epic of ancient Germany. It is the morning star, or rather the morning sun of the second youth of the world,— the period when the human intellect awoke from that reign of darkness which makes a gulf between ancient and modern history. We delight to sae a second dawn of childhood similar to the first, and yet original: full of the freshness Rnd brightness of the first, and yet of a different character: a charactetoo that has been remarkably preserved in the Gerr man, and, as Mr. Carlyle has observed, in it alone of all the literatures of modern Europe, down to the present day.
