"He ascribes the revolution to the united action of the Irish and the socialists, who flock to a country which converts itself into an asylum for all persons who cannot live peaceably or respectably anywhere else. The sketch is not notable as an effort of the imagination, but sets forth in a vigorous manner the wholly possible consequences of a political policy which allows in the name of liberty a shameful amount of personal li cense and official tyranny." - Dial, June.

It is written with a cleverness that is almost painful, epigrammatic sentences, phrases stuffed to bursting with meaning, make up with the least possible matrix of padding, a literary mosaic. The novel is decidedly the best Mr. Meredith has given to the world." - Spectator, Apr. 18.

"Mr. Sophus Tromholt who is by birth a Dane, but by naturalization a Norwegian-visited Lapland as a participator in the work of the International Polar Research Expeditions, in order to study the phenomenon
his eyes only to watch the aurora borealis. He examined everything that came in his way; and he took with him, moreover, a photographic apparatus, of which he made use at every opportunity, the result being that the two volumes contain, in a literary as well as in a pictorial sense, a very complete sketch of the conditions of existence in an arctic land that has been but little visited by Englishmen. He devotes a long and learned though not by any means a dry chapter to his theories respecting the aurora borealis, and elaborately explains the series of observations which lead him to suppose that the average height above the earth of the lower edges of the aurora which he examined was slightly over seventy miles. The two volumes may be read with pleasure. Their scientific value is considerable; and they give the most minute account that has yet been published of the home life and habits of one of the few remaining savage peoples of Europe." - St. James's budget, May 23.

The author who would succeed under such conditions must be not merely thoroughly but instinctively familiar with the problems of the age in which the personage he describes lived, and with the aims and ideas which were natural to it, however strange they may seem to us.
