In reference to Shakespeare all questions which touch art are presented to his mind. Men of Genius.—Homer, Job, Æschylus, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Lucretius, Juvenal, Tacitus, St. Revery, which readily accepts dreams for the sake of proposing enigmas, might ask to what men these tibias of three fathoms in height had belonged.
To treat these questions, is to explain the mission of art; to treat these questions, is to explain the duty of human thought toward man. The south façade of the house looked on the garden, the north façade on a deserted road.
Such an occasion for speaking truths imposes a duty, and he is not permitted, above all at such an epoch as ours, to evade it. He has not hesitated to turn the complex questions of art and civilization on their several faces, multiplying the horizons every time that the perspective has displaced itself, and accepting every indication that the subject, in its rigorous necessity, has offered to him. A corridor at the entrance to the ground-floor, a kitchen, a greenhouse, and a courtyard, with a little parlour, having a view of the lonely road, and a pretty large study, scarcely lighted; on the first and second floors, chambers, neat, cold, scantily furnished, newly repainted, with white blinds to the window,—such was this lodging, with the noise of the sea ever resounding.
This expansion of the point of view has given rise to this book. This house, a heavy, right-angled white cube, chosen by those who inhabited it apparently by chance, perhaps by intentional destiny, had the form of a tomb.

The desire of introducing, as they say in England, before the public, the new translation of Shakespeare, has been the first motive of the author. The neighbouring seashore was hid from this garden by a rise in the ground; on this rise there was a field of short grass, where some nettles and a big hemlock flourished.Tiberius did more; not content with exile, he ordained oblivion.It was forbidden to the orators of the senate and the forum to pronounce the name of Vipsanius Minator.Places of suffering and trial end by having a kind of bitter sweetness which, later on, causes them to be regretted.They have a stern hospitality which pleases the conscience.The arrival was mournful; but after all, we declare, the stay in it was agreeable, and Marine Terrace has not left to those who then inhabited it anything but affectionate and dear remembrances.And what we say of that house, Marine Terrace, we say also of that island of Jersey.
