Excerpt from Literary Studies, Vol. 2 of 3
This is a marvellous book. Everybody has read it, and every one has read it with pleasure. It has little advantage of subject. When the volumes came out, an honest man said, I suppose something happened between the years 1689 and 1697 but what happened I do not know Every one knows now. N 0 period with so little obvious interest will henceforth be so familiarly known. Only a most felicitous and rather curious genius could and would shed such a light on such an age. If in the following pages we seem to cavil and find fault, let it be remembered, that the business of a critic is criticism that it is not his business to be thankful; that he must attempt an estimate rather than a eulogy.
