    Excerpt from The Last Hundred Years of English Literature

    The poetry of the age that succeeded the Restoration differed widely from all that had gone before it. 'the revo lution had passed like a deluge over England, and. Had obliterated the old landmarks. The traditions of the great agethad been lost amid the storms of the civil wars. The' whole character of English life had been changed. The courtiers who surrounded Charles II bore little or no re semblance to the Cavaliers who had fought round his father, still less did his subjects resemble the yeomanry who had gathered round Good Queen Bess in the hour of England's need. The theatres had been closed for years, and the master pieces of the Eliszabethan drama were all but forgotten when they were reopened. Hence there was no English taste to oppose that which the courtiers imported from France. In their exile they had become acquainted with the literature of that country, and had imbibed its taste. To this the decline of our poetry has often been ascribed, and it doubt less hastened, though I do not think it caused it. It injured our poetry for the same reason that it stimulated our science, it brought us into connexion with the other nations of Eirope,'and so exposed us to the in¿uences that were governing them.
