Lessing.  Lessing had a genuine French talent, and, as writer, went most assiduously to the French school.  He knows well how to arrange and display his wares in his shop window.  Without this true art his thoughts, like the objects of them, would have remained rather in the dark, nor would the general loss be great.  His art, however, has taught many (especially the last generation of German scholars) and has given enjoyment to a countless number.  It is true his disciples had no need to learn from him, as they often did, his unpleasant tone with its mingling of petulance and candour.  Opinion is now unanimous on Lessing as "lyric poet” and will someday be unanimous on Lessing as "dramatic poet”.
