Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Atlantic Monthly, 1881, Vol. 48: A Magazine of Literature, Science, Art, and Politics The other cause for the merry roguery of the Middle Ages we find in the grad ual civilization of the Northmen and their settlement over all Europe. These men, living in snow and ice, their long win ter one endless night, seem from their very hardships and struggles to have evolved in a shorter time more sym pathy than the Southern nations. There is a special tendency in the East and in Southern countries to associate pleasure with the exercise of cruelty. Though the Northmen were brutal enough, rough, unpolished warriors as they were, there was in them a queer, grotesque humor which softened their otherwise too rugged nature. Strong and invincible, they un consciously in?uenced the people among whom they settled; and the Spirit which arose from the blending of the rich hu mor of the North with the refined malice of the South rapidly made itself felt through Europe. We see it peeping out from the goblins and fantastic figures of Gothic architecture; we hear it in the merry shake of the cap and bells of the privileged fool; and we find it in the quaint literature of those days. Even Satan appears in a new light; we al most lose sight of the dignified Lucifer of the Hebrews, and in the Mephisto phelian laugh which now accompanies all his exploits there is a gleam of the mischief-maker Loki. This stage of mischief served its good end. Luther and Calvin accomplished great reforms, but they might not have succeeded so read ily had they been unaided by Rabelais.
