    What if all things that were extant when he went to sleep had passed away, and he was waking now in another epoch of time? And there was a legend that his brethren once caught the renegade and imprisoned Doctor Grimshawe/s Secret book in his own birthplace-- "In the secret chamber? He told, too, of a place that made little Ned blush and cast down his eyes to hide the tears of anger and shame at he knew not what, which would irresistibly spring into them; for it reminded him of the almshouse where, as the cruel Doctor said, Ned himself had had his earliest home. As he looked back on this period of his life, he wrote: "I have not lived, but only dreamed about living. This one in Grimshawe is a nightmare, perhaps because Hawthorne is his own hero and villain, god and devil, lover and hater.

    His tone is singularly effective—wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes There have Doctor Grimshawe/s Secret book included in this volume photographic reproductions of certain pages of the original manuscript of Doctor Grimshawe, selected at random, upon which those ingenious persons whose convictions are in advance of their instruction are cordially invited to try their teeth; for it has been maintained that Mr. But there never was a wife precisely fitted for our friend the Doctor, unless it had been Arachne herself, to whom, if she could again have been restored to her female shape, he would doubtless have lost no time in paying his addresses. It belongs to an earlier version of the romance. He resolved to make trial at once whether it were possible to move him.

    He begun, perforce, to come nearer actuality. I failed in that mission; and yet there are circumstances that have led me to think that I ought to have succeeded better,--that some other person has really succeeded better. The water wondrously causes the old rose to bloom again when it is dropped into it. After looking at her a moment or two, he quietly took her willing and warm little hand in his own, and led her up to the Doctor.

In rewriting the first part, the author made Doctor Grimshawe/s Secret book minor alterations in the plot and characters of the story, which alterations were not carried into the second part. The group, methinks, must have been a picturesque one, made up as it was of several apparently discordant elements, each of which happened to be so combined as to make a more effective whole.

They were of those states of mind, probably, which are beyond the sphere of human language, and would necessarily lose their essence in the attempt to communicate or record them.

Thank God that I suffice for her boundless heart! To say that the story is complete as a work of art, would be quite Doctor Grimshawe/s Secret book matter. To read them is to look into the man's mind, and see its quality and action. The Warden's further inquiries, which he pushed as far as was decorous, elicited nothing more than this; and he was preparing to take his leave,--not seeing any reason for insisting according to Elsie's desire on the impossibility of seeing a man who was not there,--nor, indeed, any reason for so doing.

Gascoigne - A politician whose career was ruined by his corruption. We shall see! In this miserable delusion he has cowered there for five and thirty years. Of these, the one most spacious and convenient had been selected by Doctor Grimshawe as a study, and fitted up with bookshelves, and various machines and contrivances, electrical, chemical, and distillatory, wherewith he might pursue such researches as were wont to engage his attention.

There were cobwebs in his own brain, and so he saw nothing valuable but cobwebs in the world around him; and deemed that the march of created things, up to this time, had been calculated by foreknowledge to produce them.

Never was a more pitiful sight than that pale countenance, so infantile still, yet looking old and experienced already, with a sense of disgrace, with a feeling of loneliness; so beautiful, nevertheless, that it seemed to possess all the characteristics which fine hereditary traits and culture, or many forefathers, could do in refining a human stock.

Doctor Grimshawes Secret

Of all barbarous haunts in Christendom or elsewhere, this study was Doctor Grimshawe/s Secret book one most overrun with spiders. It grieves me to add an additional touch or two to the Doctor Grimshawe/s Secret book disagreeable impression of Doctor Grimshawe's residence, by confessing that it stood in a shabby by-street, and Doctor Grimshawe/s Secret book on a graveyard, with which the house communicated by a back door; so that with a hop, skip, and jump from the threshold, across a flat tombstone, the two children were in the daily habit of using the dismal cemetery as their playground.

With this purpose, he mounted his horse, at the hour of his usual morning ride, and set forth; and, before reaching the village, saw a figure before him which he recognized as that of the pensioner. Elsie must know the baselessness of Redclyffe's claims, and be loath to tell him, because she sees that he is so much interested in them.

Their youth restored, they begin acting as fatuously as they did in their prime. If these things had come fairly before me, and been represented to me with whatever force belongs to them, before my accession to the estate,--these and other facts which I have since become acquainted with,--I might have deliberated on the expediency of coming to such a doubtful possession.

As regards "Doctor Grimshawe's Secret," the title which, for lack of a better, has been given to this Romance, it can scarcely be pronounced deficient in either elaboration or profundity.

There had been hidden from sight many a broad, bluff visage of husbandmen that had ploughed the real English soil; there the faces of noted men, now known in history; there many a personage whom tradition told about, making wondrous qualities of strength and courage for him;--all these, mingled with succeeding generations, turned up and battened down again with the sexton's spade; until every blade of grass was human more than vegetable,--for an hundred and fifty years will do this, and so much time, at least, had elapsed since the first little mound was piled up in the virgin soil.

He thought that Braithwaite's face assumed a strange, subtile smile,-- not malicious, yet crafty, triumphant, and at the same time terribly sad, and with that perception his senses, his life, welled away; and left him in the deep ancestral chair at the board of Braithwaite.

But deceased people see matters from an erroneous—at least too exclusive—point of view; a comfortable grave is an excellent possession for those who need it, but a comfortable house has likewise its merits and temporary advantages.

Internal evidence of various kinds goes to show that the second part was the first written; or, in other words, that the present first part is a rewriting of an original first part, afterwards discarded, and of which the existing second part is the continuation.

The matter is not, in itself, of importance, and is alluded to here only as having been brought forward in connection with other insinuations, with the notice of which it seems unnecessary to soil these pages.
