A PRINCE OF NEUROTICS : AELIUS ARISTIDES

of the ship of his personality and allows' no obstacle to check it. When it leaves him, the forces of literature ebb and those of torpor dominate him. A dullness, a chill seizes him, and he sinks down like an eagle that furls his wing.
Alone of all the Greeks I know I have devoted myself to literature not for wealth or glory or honour, or a marriage or a princedom, or for any external thing. I loved her without disguise for her own sake and she has honoured me as my love deserved. Some delight in the company of a loved one, some in bathing, some in drinking to repletion ; others are dazzled by horse or hound. Some desert literature because they are devoted to amusement, others because some other concern occupies their minds. For me all titles, all meanings are summed up in her. I look on her as child and parent, as activity and relaxation, as everything. To her I give the name of love ; she is the companion of my light and serious moments, my delight, my darling.
That is the artist's creed, which we shall find in Flaubert or Whistler no less than in Aristides. ` No,' wrote Flaubert to his fiancee, 'you had far better love my art and not myself. ... Worship thought, for in thought alone is truth.... Can art, the only thing in life that is true and valuable, be compared with earthly love ? Can the adoration of relative beauty be preferred to an eternal worship ? Veneration for art-that is the best thing that I possess : it is the one thing for which I respect myself.'

The following extracts from The Roman Speech show another side of Aristides. The speech contains much windy rhetoric, and, like most panegyrics, it goes too far : the author did not see the Roman Empire in a dry light. But it shows how one of her provincial subjects could speak of Rome, and at times pierces, in a degree remarkable for a contemporary, to the secret of her success. The speech begins with a review of other empires : the Persians, 'who never learnt to distinguish empire from despotism'; the Greeks, 'who dreamed of empire
