IN THE HAUNTS OF THE MOCKING- BIRD. THE mocking-bird has been called the American nightingale, with a view, no doubt, to inflicting a compliment involving the opera- tion, known to us all, of damning with faint praise. The nightingale presumably is not the sufferer by the comparison, since she holds immemorial title to preeminence amongst sing- ing-birds. The story of Philomela, however, as first told, was not an especially pleasing one, and the poets made no great use of it. Nowhere in Greek or Roman literature, so far as I know, is there any genuine lyric apostro- phe to the nightingale comparable to Sapphos fragment To the Rose still the bird has a prestige gathered from centuries of poetry and upheld by the master romancers of the world. To compare the song of any other bird with that of the nightingale is like instituting a comparison between some poet of to-day and Shakespeare, so far as any sympathy with the would-be rival is concerned. The world has long ago made up its mind, and when the world once does that there is an end, a cul de sac, a stopping-place, of all argument of the question. Indeed, it is a very romantic dis- tance that separates the bird from most of us. Chaucers groves and Shakespeares woods shake out from their leaves a fragrance that reaches us along with asong which is half the birds and half the poets. We connect the nightingales music with a dream of chivalry, troubadours, and mediaeval castles. It is as dear to him who has heard it only in the changes rung by the Persian, French, and bards as it is to him whose chamber English window opens on a choice haunt of the bird in rural England. I might dare to go further and claim that I, who have never heard a nightingale sing, can say with truth that its music is, in a certain as familiar to me as the sound of a run- way, ning stream or the sough of a spring breeze. I often find myself reluctantly shaking off something like a recollection of having somewhere, in some dim old grove, heard the voice that Keats imprisoned in his matchless ode. There is a sort of aerial perspective in the mere name of the nightingale it is like some of those classical allusions which bring into a modern essay suggestions with an Infinite distance in them. So thoroughly has this been felt that it may safely be said that the nightingale has been more frequently mentioned by our American writers, good, bad, and indifferent, than any one of our native birds. No doubt it ought to provoke a smile, this gushing about a music one has never heard but, like the music of the spheres and the roar of the ocean, the nightingales voice is common property, and we all take it as a sort of hereditary music, descending to us by immemorial custom. Its notes are echoing within us, and we feel their authenticity though in fact we know as little about the bird as chemists do about Geber...Versandfertig in 6-10 Tagen, [SC: 0.00]

Excerpt from book: TANGLE-LEAF PAPERS. I. In the season of nest-building, which is also the season of song-singing, the by-ways of American rural districts offer many attractions to the student of nature, and especially to the student who hopes to turn his discoveries to account in any field of art. Of mere descriptive matter, so far as it may go in literature, and of mere conventionalization, so far as decorative drawing and painting are concerned, the most that was ever possible has, probably, already been done; but the higher forms of art, which we have agreed to call creative, must get the germs of all new combinations from the suggestions of nature. I often have thought that even criticism in our country would have more virility in it if the critics had more time and more inclination to study nature outside of cities and greenhouses. How can Wordsworth be studied with true critical insight by one who but vaguely remembers the outlines of the woods and fields, the shady lanes, and the fine aerial effects of hilly landscape? When one with open eyes and ears goes out into the unshorn ways of nature in the creative season-spring-the fine fervor at work in birds, and trees, and plants, in the air, the earth, and the water, is so manifest that one cannot doubt that some subtle element of originality is easily obtainable therefrom by infection. Of course one must be susceptible tothe most delicate shades of influence in order to get the values of nature. Even the photograph is to be caught on no plate save the most sensitive. The other day, when I told a friend that I had discovered that the mocking-bird never tries to imitate the cooing of a dove, he said, "Why, every one knew that long ago."- " Show me the record," I demanded; but he could not.
