THE SOPHISTS : POLEMON AND HERODES ATTICUS

trivial or remote from reality. Their age had great social and political problems. The sophists were too busy with words and rhythms to perceive that these existed. When they deal with real life they touch it with unreality. Mere virtuosos, they show what men may become when educated in a narrow study of literature.
Their figures that strutted on the broad stage of the Roman Empire have faded into ghosts in the lumber-rooms of history. Their fame is as silent as the crowds that filled their lecture halls. The speeches of which they and the world were so proud are unknown to all except a few scholars, who glance at them and say, What stuff ! But they have their heirs and their uses. Something of their mannerisms can be seen in Stevenson. Something of their blood runs in the veins of the French Symbolists. The journal of the Des Goncourts reveals the same type of society as we meet in Philostratus. The sophists would have applauded alike the mendacious epigrams of Wilde, Shaw, or Chesterton, and the exquisite style in which French writers know how to clothe inanity. And they have their uses. For they warn us that all art is doomed to oblivion which thinks. more of the form than of the matter, more of how things are said or painted than of the things themselves.
