The Colonnade, Vol. 14 free pdf Excerpt from The Colonnade, Vol. 14: 1919-1922 Our ambition is to serve that reader who, even when he wants in the footnotes, specific reference to sources and authorities, wants in the text something better than "dissertation English-" the reader that knows a ballade from a ballad, a villa from a villanelle- the reader that, meeting the sestet from On First Looking into Chapman's Homer, does not have to be told that the quotation is from Keats, and knows that Chapman's Homer was not an event of the baseball season of 1920. If that be "high-brow," make the most of it! If our programme appeals, will you not come over into Macedonia and help us? The centenary reprint of the Poetical Works of John Trumbull, LL.D., which constitutes Part II of this fourteenth volume of The Colonnade, seems to us especially appropriate to such an organization as the Andiron Club. For Trumbull was not merely the principal verse-satirist of the American Revolution. Unlike the author of his model, Hudibras, Trumbull united in himself the scholar, the lover of literature, and the gentleman. He was a classicist without pedantry and a modernist without superficiality- a progressive who knew when to conserve, and a conservative who knew when to advance- a satirist who had not lost his human-kind-ness- a reformer who retained his sense of humor- an all but lifelong invalid, yet an all but lifelong public servant. What he and his associates of the Hartford Wits accomplished through The Anarchiad and (we believe) through the Lycurgus Papers, against the Bolshevism of their day, is an honor to their New England Federalism. What, through the poems here reprinted, Trumbull achieved for educational reform and for American independence, is a permanent contribution to American thought and culture. Were Trumbull now living, the Andiron Club would be seeking him as one of its select group of "honorary" members. Denied this, the Club reprints his complete Poetical Works.
