Excerpt from Modern English Essays, Vol. 3 "I love a man that doth stoutly express himself," said Montaigne, and his preference might well point to the stout comments of W. E. Henley on Hazlitt the essayist that give backbone to this volume. Henley led at the close of last century a little phalanx of his own, and made of The Scots (that became The National) Observer (1889-1894) another in the long succession of journals that fostered the essay. His account of Hazlitt comes, however, not from that source, but from an edition of Hazlitt's works. It may be placed with Augustine Birrell's account of Lamb, also from a new edition of a favourite author, in that series of justificative pieces on which essayists rest their case for an independent canon. Of their near contemporaries, Richard Jefferies is a little master among the essayists of nature. "The Sun and the Brook" comes from a posthumous collection entitled The Hills and the Vale. Mrs. Meynell, individual in her method as any of this group, was a National Observer contributor who had a pen sensitive and sure. She and "Vernon Lee" (Miss Paget) have both written delightfully, in their different ways, on the power and spirit of place. The essay "Genius Loci" is from the volume of that name. Mrs. Meynell's "Point of Biography" is from her Collected Essays. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
