This is it - 'Nothing that has lived,' said he, 'shall ever die, and nothing that has died shall ever live. Joseph, the three Kings; the simple Shepherds kneeling in the fields, while Angels with glories about their brow called to the poor Peasants from the blue sky above. Nevertheless, my men were able to bring me out from that press and away, and we had bitten the Trutz-Drachen dogs so deep that they were too sore to follow us, and so let us go our way in peace. The Baron pushed back his chair heavily and rose to his feet.

Pyle seems to have struck a happy mean in Otto of the Silver Hand; the language is Otto of the silver hand book too contemporaneous or too archaic. And so, like a half savage mastiff, faithful to death to his master, but to him alone, he went his sullen way and lived his sullen life within the castle walls, half respected, half feared by the other inmates, for it was dangerous trifling with the one-eyed Hans. But within these covers, beautiful as they were, lay the real wonder of the books, like the soul in the body; for there, beside the black letters and initials, gay with red and blue and gold, were beautiful pictures painted upon the creamy parchment. Howard Pyle ingeniously utilizes the Middle Ages as a symbol of the childish revelation that the human experience is torn between beauty and barbarism, culture and chaos, life and death. But what of that, Otto?

I will put down their lawless rapine, if I have to give every castle from the north to the south to the flames and to the sword. Our young ones can learn through books on the world that the Book of the World has some dark chapters—and they ought to have some means to cope with that soul-shaking realization. One man always rode beside Baron Conrad in his expeditions and adventures—a short, deep-chested, broad-shouldered man, with sinewy arms so long that when he stood his hands hung nearly to his knees. With the creaking and groaning of the windlass the iron-pointed portcullis would be slowly raised, and with a clank and rattle and clash of iron chains the drawbridge would fall crashing. Maybe it would be evening before the men would return once more.

No one at Drachenhausen could read but Master Rudolph, the steward, who was sand blind, and little Otto. The Baron needed to hear no more. At the end of the corridor the Baron turned, "Let the leech be sent to the boy," said he.

The gates of the Monastery stood wide open, the world lay beyond, and all was ready for departure.

Otto of the Silver Hand

Hans saw that look out of his one eye. Answer me, where is thy mistress? But since Brother John is a child, he is also a visionary.

But most of all they loved to lie up in the airy wooden belfry; the great gaping bell hanging darkly above them, the mouldering cross-beams glimmering far up under the dim shadows of the roof, where dwelt a great brown owl that, unfrightened at their familiar presence, stared down at them with his round, solemn eyes.

The troubles in which he was born must have broken his wits like a glass cup. Four or five slatternly women and girls served Otto of the silver hand book others as they fed noisily at the table, moving here and there behind the men with wooden or pewter dishes of food, now and then laughing at the jests that passed or joining in the talk.

It was with nearly a hundred armed men clattering behind him that Baron Conrad rode away to court to answer the imperial summons. Another man was with the Baron, a heavy-faced fellow clad in a leathern jerkin over which was drawn a short coat of linked mail.

Just then the door opened and one came pushing past the rest; it was the one-eyed Hans. The Baron started at the sound. His new home was all very strange and wonderful to Otto; the armors, the trophies, the flags, the long galleries with their ranges of rooms, the great hall below with its vaulted roof and its great fireplace of grotesquely carved stone, and all the strange people with their lives and thoughts so different from what he had been used to know.

The Baron saw the look and in it read a certain meaning that brought him to his elbow, though only to sink back upon his pillow again with a groan.

Joseph, the Shepherds, and the Kine. But Baron Conrad was not dead. Again, at another time, going into the court-yard, Otto had found the door of Melchior's tower standing invitingly open, for old Hilda, Schwartz Carl's wife, had come down below upon some business or other.
