He writes as if his life were discrete chapters with each one emerging as a finely crafted essay. In "My First Acquaintance with Poets," he takes the uncomfortable position of praising them from the vantage of their decade's long drift from liberalism all the while seeming to praise them as elite members of the Romantic pantheon. This essay is one of the very few in which Hazlitt is circumspect in his true feelings.

Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

Essays of william hazlitt. OF the life of William Hazlitt, no more will be said here than seems needful for considering his work as an Essayist, He was born on the loth of April 1778, in Mitre Lane, Maidstone. His father was a Unitarian minister, who, after several changes, settled at Wem, in Shropshire. In 1795, amongst other places, young Hazlitt visited Burleigh House, and beheld its pictures, some of which he treasured in his mind to the end of life.

He is also acknowledged as the finest art critic of his age. Despite his high standing among historians of literature and art, his work is currently little read and mostly out of print.

William Hazlitt (1778-1830) was one of the greatest of English essayists, and this selection offers a wide range of his writings: it begins with Hazlitt's comments on the romantic poets who were his contemporaries, Wordsworth and Coleridge; it goes on to give a flavour of his influential views on the theatre and the visual arts; and it finishes with some fascinating accounts of the leisure activities of the Romantics, from boxing to juggling to rambles in the countryside. The selection was made by George Sampson in 1917 and reprinted many times thereafter, and the essays are offered with annotations that not only illuminate the texts, but are themselves now of interest as reflecting the period in which they were written. Cambridge University Press is delighted to bring this classic edition back into print.
