Sintesi dell'editore

This is an essay from the Favorite Essays collection.

Here, in this unusual collection, are some of the greatest essays in Western literature. Witty, informative and imaginative, the topics vary from starvation in Ireland, fine China, the extension of railways in the Lake District, and the tombs in Westminster Abbey. A little like after-dinner monologues, they are passing thoughts expressed as journalism. Neville Jason reads with urbane clarity.

Master of the English Language

A compilation essays composed by the man who created the Dictionary of the English Language all later English dictionaries are patterned after. His style of writing is challenging. He is quick witted, a top notch moralist and moralist.

He lived most of the eighteenth century. He will make anyone ponder long after putting the volume down the subjects he has covered.
