WORKS BY MR. RUSKIN.

ROADSIDE SONGS OF TUSCANY: Translated and Illustrated by Francesca Alexander, and Edited by John Ruskin, LL.D., etc., etc.

..

EXTRACTS. The Translator:-"These songs and hymns of the poor people.. are but the siftings, so to say, of hundreds and hundreds which I have heard and learnt, mostly from old people: many of them have never, so far as I know, been written down before, and others it would be impossible now to find. . . . In their day they have been a comfort to many. Labouring people have sung them at their work, and have felt their burdens lightened; they have brightened the long winter evenings of the poor women in lonely houses high among the mountains, when they have been sitting over their fires of fir-branches, with their children about them, shut in by the snows outside, and with their men all away in the Maremma: and I have known those who have been helped to bear sickness and trouble, and even to meet death itself, with more courage, by verses of the simple old hymns. It seems to me that there are others who will collect and preserve the thoughts of the rich and great but I have wished to make my book all of poor people's poetry, and who knows but it may contain a word of help or consolation for some poor soul yet? However that may be, I have done my best to save a little of what is passing away.'

...

The Editor:-"Miss Alexander's work. in its relation to former religious art of the same faithfulness, is distinguished by the faculty and habit of realization which belongs to all Pre-Raphaelism, whether English or American; that is to say, it represents any imagined event as far as possible in the way it must have happened, and as it looked when happening, to people who did not then know its Divine import... The songs could not be in what is best of them understood, -even a little understood,-without the pictures of the people who love them. . . . I had partly hoped in closing this series of pictures of the hearts of the Italian peasantry, to indicate the main lessons they seemed to bear for us all. But I am abashed before their. strength and innocence, and able to draw only this one conclusion of deep practical import,—that the only service we can rightly render them is to love them... I am thankful my life has been spared at least to place before my countrymen these records of domestic virtue yet vivid and pure, in the nation which taught us the first syllables of Christ's Gospel."
