Meaning. Goethe was an Initiate, yet it is doubtful
whether he ever understood the wealth of wisdom

which Wagner had probably very incomplete knowledge.
Ibsen often sneered at critics who perceived in his
works depths to which the conscious thought of the
Author never had plunged. The great Norwegian poet
possessed the gift of tongues : he lacked that of inter-

than any other: it consists in instant perception of
the Inner Meaning of Allegories, Metaphors, Fables,
and Parables. It is a magnificent gift, and St. Paul
was justified in saying " that it gave edification." The
faculty of speaking in tongues has been distributed
since time immemorial amongst all the nations of
Earth, as it is one of the favourite modes of mani-

abundant in the Middle Ages, and meets us constantly
in modern times. But this gift is only discerned by
