Mr. Browning was in his twenty-first year when Pauline, his maiden effort in the realms of obscure and incomprehensible poetry, first saw the light. We much doubt whether anyone really understands what the effusion is about, or what it means; perhaps the author himself has his doubts, for we read that when the poem was inserted in his collected works, he recast entirely the whole of the punctuation," a close comparison between the two versions showing that the variations in the pointing number two or three in every line." Here is a triumph of genius unsurpassed by any writer whatever, for it absolutely does not matter whether Mr. Browning's lines are pointed or not, or where they are pointed, or what kind of points are used. "Rare Mr. Browning!"

However, it is the fashion to admire Pauline, which is at any rate a highly respectable and accommodating poem; and perhaps after all the enthusiastic young ladies who have founded societies up and down the kingdom may be able to explain it.

The reprint itself has been executed with great fidelity (in the original pointing), and so far as the publisher and editor are concerned, they have every reason to be satisfied with its similarity to the original. Mr. Wise contributes a short prefatory note.
