    Whitman, however, when he finds anything to commend, has an unpleasant habit of making it the occasion for railing in the manner of Carlyle at the contrasted imperfections of our own realm of the Habsburgs book or plutocratic regime. Freeman was wont to indulge, and which were not so long ago the fashion in England ; but he does not seem to appreciate the full significance of the Habsburg power, or the almost inevitable cohesion between the different races of the Empire which enables it to persist through all vicissitudes. In the chapters he leads the reader from the overall urban framework to individual aspects.

He tries to increase the effect by the addition of ornamental writing, with constant notes of exclamation, touches of melodrama, sen- tences that sound like a far-off echo of Carlyle.
