Here he is established without a rival, on his own ground, as the poet of the home. Domesticity has had many celebrants, but I cannot remember any one work in which such a number of the expressions of Everyman, in his capacity as householder, husband and father, have been touched upon, and touched upon so happily and with such deep and simple sincerity. The poet of The Angel in the House was, I suppose, a predecessor; but Coventry Patmore was a mystic and a rhapsodist, whereas Mr. Morley keeps on a more normal plane and puts in verse, thoughts and feelings and excitements that most of us have known but have lacked the skill or will to epigrammatise. If we are to look in literature for a kindred spirit to hlr. Morley's we find it rather in the author of The Cotter's Saturday Night. But Mr. Morley is at once more modern and more modest. And he is more whimsical and original as an appreciator.
