The Hungarian Poet.âSuch of our readers as have been present at the French recitations in Paris of the celebrated Hungarian poet, Hugo, or have heard of the furore which he recently created at the Salle Hertz, will be pleased to learn that this gifted poet has arrived in London, and purposes giving a public soiree, when he will recite his much-admired tragedy. L'Iliade Finie, 'or The Iliad Completed In this place no less than eight characters are introduced, four male and four female, each of which requires a, distinct modulation of the voice as well as appropriate gesticulation. The accomplishment of this toity- de i force is not less astounding than the extraordinary powers of memory displayed by Hugo, who declaims l the entire tragedy without the aid of a prompter.
