The Atlantic for October.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Atlantic for October contains a long instalment of Mr. Bynnier's interesting serial, "The Begum's Daughter." There are several very good historical essays. The first is a description of the experiences of a non-combatant in South Carolina in 1861, by J. R. Kendrick. John Fiske offers another of his critical essays on the Revolutionary period, the topic being, "The Monmouth and Newport Campaigns." "The Closing Scene of the Iliad," by William C. Lawton, will be of interest to all classical students. One of the most readable articles in the number is "Fictions in the Pulpit," by Agnes Repplier. The writer makes a strong protest against the extreme moralistic and didactic tone of modern novel. Professor Joseph H. Thayer contributes an admirable description of the noble life and work of the late President Theodore Dwight Woolsey.
