An Outline Analysis of "Bordello." By Jeanie Morison. (Black- wood

and Sons.)—This is a book that commends itself by its title. No one doubts that there is much to be got out of Browning's verse, if one only has patience. Sometimes the effort required is but small ; sometimes, as in "Bordello," it is great, too great for ordinary readers, and an intelligent, or rather a more than intelligent guide, a guide of exceptionally penetrating insight, is, we may say, indispensable.
