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
The poem of The Nibelungen Lied, is fully worthy 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
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 see a second dawn of childhood similar to the first, and yet original: full of the freshness and 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.
