straightway he began to live as if he were to have 500 pounds a month. Soon his pockets were empty, and the much praised Dr Goldsmith was again at the beck and call of the booksellers. He wrote history, natural history, whatever they called for ; one thing was as easy as another. In 1770 he wrote The Deserted Village. Like almost all of Pope's work, this is written in the rhymed heroic couplet, but here the resemblance ends. Pope's writings were polished ; Goldsmith's were marked by an inimitable natural charm, the charm of a graceful style, of a tenderness and delicate humour of which Pope never dreamed. The idea of the poem is pathetic; but the parts that come to mind oftenest are the sympathetic description of the village pastor who was " passing rich with forty pounds a year," and the picture of the schoolmaster :

In arguing, too, the parson owned his skill,
For, e'en tho' vanquished, he could argue still ;
While words of learned length and thundering sound
Amazed the gazing rustics ranged around ;
And still they gazed, and still the wonder grew,
That one small head could carry all he knew.

Once more Goldsmith wrote a play, She Stoops to Conquer. This was founded upon his own adventures when first possessed of a guinea and a borrowed horse. "'Where is the best house in the place ?" he had demanded in a strange village with all the airs that he fancied to be the mark
